Being outside at night

It is our common responsibility to respect natural environment, especially as many animal species are active during night time. It is important to switch the light off, when there is no need for using it – doing this will help you to avoid affecting your night vision and others in the area. Remember not to leave anything but your footprints out in the nature.
