Building a sustainable future
At Carafin Activity Park we’re dedicated and committed to the conservation of the park and its environment, conserving and managing the area which forms part of Ireland’s hidden heartlands. We’re part of the Leave No Trace movement and we’re making the park as sustainable as possible with solar lighting, rainwater harvesting, waste management, biodiversity and so much more.
We follow the 7 Leave no Trace Principles
1. Plan Ahead and Prepare
2. Be Considerate of Others
3. Respect Farm Animals and Wildlife
4. Travel and Camp on Durable Ground
5. Leave What You Find
6. Dispose of Waste Properly
7. Minimise the Effects of Fire
Practising a Leave No trace ethic is very simple: Make it hard for others to see or hear you and LEAVE NO TRACE of your visit
Carafin Activity Park completed a Business Sustainability Training Programme with Cuilcagh Lakelands Geopark, facilitated by The Tourism Space in September 2022. The Business Sustainability Training Programme is a framework that allows businesses located within Cuilcagh Lakelands UNESCO Global Geopark to come together to build a sustainable tourism offering, achieve cost savings through reductions in waste, water and energy consumption and benefit from becoming a member of The Geopark Business Network.
