Safety Information

Camping Safety

  • Avoid places close to riversides, riverbeds, and sandbanks. Some places look ideal in the daytime, but at night time when the weather changes, they may become dangerous.

  • Avoid camping under an isolated tree, as it can easily conduct lightning. Areas below huge rocks, rolling logs, or cliffs with loose soil must also be completely avoided. 

  • Avoid camping next to dense areas of weeds or low bushes, as they frequently harbor insects and snakes.

  • When pitching a tent, the rear wall must face the wind, so that the door opens on the leeside. It must be maintained a distance away from sewers and toilets.

  • The camp area must always be kept tidy, in its original condition. Litter must not be dropped, and waste-water must not be inappropriately discarded. Do not pick the flowers and plants, and do not cut down trees without permission.

  • Do not light candles, oil lamps or mosquito coil incense in the tent. Do not smoke in the tents. 

  • Children must always be accompanied by an adult. This is not only to keep children safe from danger or insect or snake bites, but also to encourage family bonding as everyone works and plays together.

Water-Recreation Safety

  • Upon entering the water, the body will suddenly experience water pressure and a cold sensation. Consequently, anyone with heart disease, lung problems, or asthma should not go swimming. Also, anyone with conditions such as athlete’s foot, pink eye, common cold, etc, should not go swimming, in order to avoid infecting others.

  • No matter the level of your swimming skills, it is best to not swim alone. It is also best to swim in safety areas where personnel are watching or in bodies of water where lifeguards are posted.

  • Beginning swimmers and poor swimmers should be aware of their own limitations. Do not enter deep water areas in unfamiliar swimming environments. Do not assume that swimming rings, air cushions, or other man-made floating devices will support you or be a substitute for your lack of swimming ability.

  • Do not dive into unfamiliar bodies of water or sandbanks, or overestimate your swimming ability. If you want to do long distance swimming, it is best to swim parallel to the shore, in the interests of safety.

  • Do not go swimming if your body is overheated, if you have just eaten, or during thunderstorms.

  • When playing by a stream, if you are unaware of the depth changes of the stream, or uncertain about whether or not there may be whirlpools, it is best not to enter the water. The pools that appear to be calm and without waves actually contain the most hidden dangers.

  • Anyone rafting down the river is required to wear a life-jacket.

  • Only shout for help in a real emergency. Do not pretend to be drowning.

  • Do not rashly attempt to dive unless you are sure of your diving skills. Take training from a qualified instructor first.

Water Activities Safety

  • When engaging in any boating activities, only boats that have been inspected in accordance with regulations, and are equipped with safety equipment, should be chosen.

  • When engaging in any boating activities, life vests should be worn at all times and passengers should comply with the guidance of the captain when boarding and de-boarding.

  • For your own safety, when boating, do not board overloaded boats. If passengers need to change seats, please keep balance low or change seats at docks or shores.

  • Surfing requires a step-by-step learning of basic skills. Please follow the instructions of a coach and thoroughly inspect equipment.

  • While surfing, surfers should be wary of their surroundings. If another surfer is surfing towards you, please dive into the water for safety precautions.

  • Surfing requires an environment with rough waves. Thus standard safety equipment may be insufficient when accidents occur. Special safety measures such as wave breakers or rescue boats should be ready.

  • While windsurfing, diving suits and helmets should be worn. Colorful surfs and clothing should also be used.

  • Snorkeling requires a mask, snorkel and flippers that should all be used under instruction of a professional. For scuba diving, participants are required to have diving training and a license, travel in pairs or more, and flag their diving zone for safety.

Drowning Prevention

  • Drowning mainly results from breathing being hindered. Consequently, first aid on a drowning patient focuses on the importance of restarting the breathing process. Even if the victim is still in the water, if it is necessary, and if the situation permits, artificial respiration must be performed immediately. After the mouth is cleared of any obstructing objects, the respiratory passages must be opened in an appropriate way, and artificial respiration must then be performed. While administering artificial respiration, there is the possibility that water in the respiratory tract will cause obstructions, hindering the artificial respiratory process. In this situation, it is necessary to reopen the respiratory tract and try again. If the rescuer still cannot breath in, this means that there is foreign matter causing an obstruction. At this point, if the victim is already on the boat or shore, the rescuer must try to eliminate the blockage in the respiratory tract. After successfully administering artificial respiration, if the victim is already on the boat or shore, an appraisal must be done of the situation. If the heartbeat is hard to determine, complete cardiopulmonary resuscitation must be administered. If any oxygen equipment is available, the highest and strongest amount of oxygen should be given. Any wet clothing that the victim is wearing should be removed, the body should be dried, and anything that can protect from the wind or keep the body warm (such as a blanket, dry clothes, or even aluminum foil or newspapers) should be used to wrap the body. The rescuer should also check the body for injuries or excessively coldness, thus a detailed examination should be carried out and handled carefully.

Mountain-Climbing Safety

  • Before climbing, make detailed preparations. Never climb on the spur of the moment.

  • Do not climb alone. It is best to go along with someone who is experienced.

  • Leave a copy of your plans with your friends and family so that they know where you will be.

  • Check the map frequently to confirm your location. Do not wander aimlessly or reach the point where you cannot backtrack.

  • Take a full set of mountain-climbing equipment, and make sure that you are familiar with how to use this equipment.

  • Know your limits, and allow yourself to improve gradually. Do not try to climb to the mountain summit or to scale up mountain peaks that are beyond your ability.

  • Take note of changes in seasonal climate and weather circumstances. Plan in advance to avoid being caught off-guard.

Bird Watchers Notices

  • Please wear camouflage fatigues or clothing similar in color to surroundings.

  • Please speak softly and prohibit from shouting. Remember to remind your children to stay quiet.

  • If the target is already in an alert stance, please do not attempt to approach it.

  • A pair of binoculars, a bird handbook, a notebook and a willing heart is all it takes to begin a bird watching trip. 

  • A binocular telescope is an indispensible tool in the world of wild birds. A pair of binoculars with 7x~10x capabilities is suitable for watching land birds.

  • When watching water fowls, because of the distance and fixed target, monocular telescopes with high magnifications are better. Suitable adjustments include stability offered by a tripod, magnification of 25x and objective diameter of 60~70mm.

  • To protect the ecological balance of birds, do not breed wild birds or release foreign birds into the wild.

  • When in view of nest-building birds or birds breeding their young, remember not to approach them and maintain a suitable viewing distance.

  • When filming/photographing wild birds, natural lighting should be used. Avoid flashes that may frighten them.

  • Some birds are naturally shy, rendering them discrete and hard to observe. Refrain from using inappropriate ways to lure them out.

  • Do not chase wild birds.

  • When breeding areas or fledglings are discovered, remember to “keep it to yourself” and refrain from disturbing them.

  • When you are part of a group, follow the orders of the guide and remember that the principle is to avoid jeopardizing the safety of the birds.

  • Do not climb or bend trees/vegetation for the purpose of observing or photographing wild birds. This will disrupt their natural habitat.

  • Please respect the right for survival of birds. Do not collect their eggs or attempt to catch them.
