Threat: Recreational ActivitiesEdit
People spending time in nature or traveling in vehicles outside of established transport corridors, usually for recreational reasons. Examples include off-road vehicles, motorboats, motorcycles, jet-skis, snowmobiles, ultralight planes, dive boats, whale watching, mountain bikes, hikers, cross-country skiers, hangliders, birdwatchers, scuba divers, pets brought into recreation areas, temporary campsites, caving, and rock-climbing.
This category does not include work involving consumptive use of biodiversity - for example disturbance impacts from loggers or hunters would be in the appropriate category in Biological Resource Use. Vehicles and boats in established transport corridors go in Transportation & Service Corridors. The development of permanent recreational or tourist facilities (such as hotels and resorts) should be included under section Tourism & Recreation Areas rather than here. (CMP)
