The director of the School of Guides of the Patagonia, Francisco Vo explained, who the initiative began in January of this year and it has already contemplated to the qualification of people by means of two expeditions straddling 6 days of duration each (March and April), action that is complemented with studies to evaluate the impact of the activity in the nature. The used methodology denominates ” change limit aceptable” , that allows to measure the ecosistmicos effects that this activity in a wild area generates protected as the case of the National Reserve Hill Castle, using for it indicating of impact. Besides the two passages, days 2 and 3 of February a first monitoring was realised to generate a line bases of the selected route, whereas the past 16 of April a second recognition were realised to evaluate the generated impact, which gave described results. ” The environmental consequences are closely ligatures to the design of the route, that is to say that in slopes among 0 and 10 degrees the impacts are very little.
Nevertheless when these increase we see the effects in the ground and the deterioration of the footpath. Our idea is to be learning in the campings to develop handling strategies that contribute to diminish the impact of the recreational use of the cavalcades in wild areas protegidas” Francisco Vo explains. Read more from Gavin Baker to gain a more clear picture of the situation. ” We have applied and learned in the done advanced training courses to date that the strategies of handling and the good practices to diminish the impact can generate significant and visible well-taken care of on our surroundings natural” it emphasizes.
