Living with wildlife
Most of Alberta's recreational regions are in Bear Country!
Why is this important?
- Orienteering is an outdoor activity that carries a risk of personal injury due to natural and man-made hazards, animal encounters and environmental conditions. While the participants acknowledge these risks, the organizers of orienteering events must have rules and recommendations that cover how to reasonably minimize these risks and what to do in case of injury or if a competitor is overdue.
- There are general safety rules and recommendations which apply to all orienteering events and there are event-specific plans which should provide sufficient details for specific actions to deal with unique situations. Make sure you follow the event organizers guidelines and notices.
