THE BEAR NECESSITIES
Planning a visit to bear habitat? These creatures usually avoid contact with humans unless they feel threatened or cornered. Here are Andy’s top tips to avoid getting on a bear’s bad side…
— Move away slowly and sideways if the bear is still.
— Stay calm. Most bears don’t want to attack.
— Talk calmly so the bear knows you are not prey.
— Leave the bear an escape route.
— Make any loud noises.
— Give the bear your food.
— Run. A bear can outrun a human.
— Climb a tree. Bears can also climb trees.
LOST IN THE DESERT?
Deserts are very unforgiving environments. Here are FIVE tips if you‘re lost amongst the sand dunes…
1. Get out of the sun. If you can’t find shade, dig a trench to lie in. If you have one, drape a tarpaulin over the top.
2. No matter how hot you get, DON’T take your clothes off. DO pee on a t-shirt and put it on your head, though. Sounds gross but it’ll cool as the urine evaporates!
3. The hot sun quickly zaps your energy. Don’t do anything too physical until night. However, you can use shiny metal or a mirror to reflect the sun and signal for help.
4. Temperatures drop drastically at night, so light a fire. It’ll also draw the attention of people for miles. You can flash a torch on and off, too, like a lighthouse signal!
5. Find water by observing animals. Look for tracks, birds circling water holes or watch where desertbats visit at the start of their evening flight.
