Tread Lightly !
OHNZ is a proud and ardent supporter of Tread Lightly! and actively encourages all our clients to take on board the message of responsible use of the great outdoors.
Tread Lightly! is not about stopping you enjoying the tracks and trails of New Zealand, either for business or pleasure - what it does ask is that you consider whether your activities are compatible with the particular area you are in. For instance, wheel-spinng, digging holes, creating big ruts, driving across wetlands etc. may all be permissible in specific areas - but for the most part they are likely to be inappropriate behaviours - so check beforehand.
Tread Lightly! employs a simple acronym to help you remember its goals, and asks that you take it as a pledge:-
Travel only where permitted
Respect the environment and
the rights of others
Educate yourself, plan and
prepare before you go
Allow for the future use of the
outdoors, leave it as
you found it
Drive and travel responsibly,
discover the rewards of
Brochures outlining Tread Lightly! in greater detail will be made available to all our clients, or you might want to contact them via e-mail at email@example.com, or visit their web site at http://treadlightly.org.nz, both individual and corporate affiliations are welcome.
