Strengthening crackdown on illegal hiking in national park'국립공원 불법산행 기동단속 강화'

[The Hwankyung Ilbo] The Korea National Park Service under the Ministry of Environment announced that it will be operating a special team that will crackdown illegal hiking that takes place in the nonlegal trails of national parks such as Mt. Jiri and Mt. Soerak.

The team has been introduced to block illegal hiking that takes place through sharing photos and information about prohibited areas in national parks in mountain cafes, private blogs, and social media.

The Korea National Park Service has detected 59 illegal violations, which are more than twice the number of 28 cases in the same period last year, as a result of piloting a team at Mt. Jiri and Mt. Soerak for one month from April 1.

The Korea National Park Service will analyze the results of the team that runs until May 31, and plan to expand the park to national parks nationwide.

Illegal hiking aaffects ecosystems, such as limiting wildlife migration between habitats and lowering the success rate of bird breeding.

In addition, safety accidents are also highly likely to occur considering the fact that among the 1,080 safety accidents during the last five years, 32 cases of deaths and 187 injuries occurred in the nonlegal trails.
