Background information and definitions
People can deliberately or unintentionally damage important habitats by straying from footpaths in sensitive areas, allowing animals such as dogs to roam freely, or by driving vehicles off-road. Introducing signs or imposing access restrictions may reduce unintentional, careless actions, as well as discouraging deliberate acts of vandalism by indicating that a site is being monitored.
