The Wild Seasons Charter
The businesses offering accommodation and other visitor facilities on this website:
- support Wild Seasons’ aim to promote as widely as possible opportunities for visitors to enjoy the wildlife and natural environment of Dumfries & Galloway.
They promote the Wild Seasons website and help to keep it up to date, and work with countryside organisations to keep abreast of local developments, for example through social media, and encourage visitors to the sites they manage.
- are committed to providing a high quality experience for visitors seeking to enjoy the wildlife and natural environment of Dumfries & Galloway.
They have professional staff who are knowledgeable of local nature-based attractions and wildlife and are sensitive to the needs of wildlife visitors, for example by being accredited as walker / cyclist-friendly or being able to offer maps, guidebooks, binoculars or packed lunches to their guests.
- have due regard for the principle of “sustainable use” of the environment.
They can demonstrate how they apply such principles in practice or can make environmental and/or sustainable tourism policies available for inspection upon request.
