  3. Keep to the specified roads and trails. Driving off track you may trample growing trees and cause disturbance to resting animals and their young.
  4. Respect the wild animals and maintain a safe distance from them. Remember, you are in their home and they get first priority.
  5. Listen to the music of the forest instead of your Gypsy stereo or transistor. The quieter you are, the more the chances of your seeing wildlife.
