La cuenta de Instagram Public Lands Hate You” se encarga de exponer algunas actitudes y acciones que tienen varios influencers en las redes sociales y que están mal.

El fundador de la cuenta, un ingeniero de 31 años que se hace llamar “Steve”, se inspiró en el mal comportamiento que a menudo observaba en las caminatas, incluidas las personas que deambulan por senderos designados, usando drones ilegalmente, pisoteando flores, etc. Él quiere avergonzarlos por sus malos hábitos.

Public lands are for everyone to enjoy, regardless of skill level. We were ALL beginners at some point. ⁣ ⁣ Historically, many people gained exposure to the outdoors through group hikes organized by local shops, trail clubs, or conservation organizations that were led by knowledgeable leaders. Today, Facebook groups and sites like “Meetup” have put a new age spin on group hikes, allowing anyone to organize an event and invite thousands of people with a few keystrokes.⁣ ⁣ I’ve run across a number of these large groups on hikes, as I know many of you probably have. The organizers of these events likely have the best of intentions, but good intentions do not always equal a positive outcome.⁣ ⁣ Large groups are not inherently bad. The issue arises when these groups exceed group size limits, ignore LNT principles, and disregard basic trail etiquette. These groups are often observed barging past other users, walking side by side on narrow trails to hold conversations, and trampling vegetation at viewpoints to fit a large number of people into pictures.⁣ ⁣ A quick perusal of hiking Meetup groups shows 100's of photos of people in these groups engaging in less than Leave No Trace behavior on group hikes, making it clear that many group leaders are not making a serious effort to educate attendees. ⁣ ⁣ Don’t get me wrong, more people being exposed to and enjoying our public lands is a GOOD thing! Every person who uses and appreciates our public lands is one more person who will understand the value of public lands and work to help protect them. However, if the people participating these group hikes are not getting the information required to be good stewards, the result is counterproductive.⁣ ⁣ Shared space means shared responsibility. All public land users have an obligation to educate themselves and others about how to treat our public lands with respect. Leaders of group hikes, particularly those that are introducing new users, have a further duty to educate about respectful, low impact behavior. Discussing and incorporating the Leave No Trace principles early, often, and consistently while using public lands is an excellent way to convey these critical skills.

Steve a menudo publica fotos de personas influyentes que exhiben un comportamiento destructivo o descuidado. Aunque Steve condena el acoso en línea, con más de 64.000 seguidores, sus publicaciones regularmente hacen que miles de personas se congreguen en el Instagram del ‘delincuente’ y dejan comentarios que van desde advertencias hasta comentarios agresivos.

A veces la vergüenza resulta exitosa. Como resultado, los patrocinadores cancelan las asociaciones con personas influyentes que se comportan de manera irresponsable y las marcas pagan miles de dólares en restitución a una organización medioambiental después de ser denunciados por su comportamiento.

Leave No Trace Principle #4 – Leave What You Find⁣ ⁣ Most of us learned in grade school that we shouldn’t take things that don’t belong to us and that if we do use something that isn't ours we should return it in the same (or better) condition than we received it. That lesson applies on our public lands as well, where plants, rocks, archaeological artifacts, and other items of interest should be left as they are found.⁣ ⁣ Trees and plants should be left unmolested. That means no carving into tree trunks, picking wildflowers, or nailing things into living plants. If you use a hammock, pick mature trees with thick bark to hang from, and be sure to use tree protectors. A 1” piece of webbing is not sufficient.⁣ ⁣ Although tempting to take a rock, sand, or a deer antler home with you from our public lands as a memory, please leave them for others to experience. If you see something interesting, take a picture and share it with your friends rather than hoarding it for yourself. In National Parks and on many other public lands it is illegal to remove natural objects, including cultural artifacts like pot shards and arrowheads which are protected by the Archaeological Resources Protection Act.⁣ ⁣ If a site requires alterations for an activity such as camping, those alterations should be minimal and reversible. Moving pine cones and branches to clear a site is fine as they can be replaced when you leave, but using a shovel to level a site and dig drainage ditches is frowned upon. Good campsites are found, not made, so if a site doesn’t suit your needs, continue exploring.⁣ ⁣ Taking one rock, some sand, or picking a few wildflowers may not seem like a big deal, and on an individual level it is not. But imagine if all 330,000,000 visitors to our National Parks last year removed a rock or wildflowers. That IS an impact. So do your part and leave our public lands as you found them. ⁣ ⁣ And this should go without saying, but leaving what you find means leaving it in the same condition you found it. Carving initials into trees, spray painting rocks, throwing holi powder everywhere, and building frivolous cairns damages our public lands and detracts from others experiences.

Steve incluso está llevando las cosas un paso más allá al lanzar una lista negra de personas influyentes que continuamente muestran “comportamiento ambientalmente destructivo” para sus patrocinios de marca. La Bad Influencer List se publicará en su sitio web oficial de Public Lands Hate You y servirá para disuadir a las marcas de asociarse con esos influencers.

“No va a decir que se trata de personas terribles, pero presentará los hechos para que las empresas puedan verlo antes de decidir si es alguien con quien realmente quieren trabajar”, dijo Steve.

With #wildfire season kicking into high gear and many people taking a long weekend for the #4thofJuly to enjoy our public lands with family and friends, let’s talk about a mainstay of many people’s outdoor adventures. Campfires. I love a good campfire. The crackle of the fire, staring into the embers, and the warmth on a cool evening is relaxing like nothing else. It’s easy to make a lovely #campfire, but are you doing it responsibly? Fire requires a source of #fuel. If bringing wood with you, make sure it was purchased nearby (within 50 miles as a rule of thumb) to avoid transport of #invasive species. If allowed, another option is to collect firewood locally. Look for #wood that is dead, down, and the diameter of your wrist or smaller. A saw/axe should not be required for collecting #firewood. To avoid stripping the immediately adjacent area, collect wood out of sight of the campfire area. Choose an acceptable location for the fire. Established fire rings are the best choice and are generally available in areas where fires are allowed. Clear the immediately surrounding area of flammable material, including leaves, #pine needles, and #forest duff (decomposing organic material) that may hide embers. Make sure to have a method of controlling the fire, at minimum a shovel, bucket, and water source. When starting the fire, avoid using #accelerants as they can result in the #fire quickly getting out of control. While the fire is burning, keep it to a size that can be controlled with the equipment at hand. Never leave a fire unattended. Don’t burn #trash. When it’s time to put the fire out, ideally let it burn down to ash, then drown it, stir/mix it, and then use your hand to feel for heat. Stick around for 30 minutes after drowning the fire and check the area to ensure no embers have escaped. Remember, not all #publiclands allow campfires and many require you to obtain a fire #permit in advance. Obey burn bans. Even if fires are allowed, take into account local conditions before lighting up. If its windy, dry, or you are in an area with a large, dry fuel source (grass, brush, dead #trees), consider postponing the fire or finding a more suitable location.

No todos creen que avergonzar es la mejor solución. Katie Boué, una consultora en línea que trabaja con grupos de defensa del medio ambiente, dijo a Outside: “Proporcionar un espacio para que las personas griten y digan cosas extremadamente despectivas e inapropiadas a los extraños en Internet no va a ayudar a las tierras públicas de ninguna manera”.

Su preocupación es en gran medida por el acoso y el ridículo desproporcionado por errores inocentes relativamente menores. Steve está tratando de abordar tales inquietudes al equilibrar la crítica con publicaciones ambientales educativas, como advertir contra prácticas comunes como el apilamiento de rocas y el geoetiquetado.

Estos influencers se enfrentan a 10 años de cárcel por volar un drone en Irán

Autor: The Way Overland

Una pareja de bologgeros de viajes, que se estaban comprometidos a visitar y recorrer “países peligrosos”, con el fin de sacar el estigma que hay entorno a ellos, ahora se enfrentan a 10 años de prisión en Irán después de volar un drone cerca de Teherán sin contar con el permiso necesario.

Jolie King y Mark Firkin, están detenidos desde julio. La pareja había viajado a Oriente Medio, después de haber visitado Australia Occidental, como parte de una expedición. Su idea era después continuar hacia Londres, y dejar todo registrado a través de su blog.

Pero todo su sueño se derrumbó cuando fueron detenidos por volar un drone cerca de Teherán sin la licencia de permiso. Podrían enfrentar una década en prisión. Continuar leyendo…
