In New Zealand, it is allowed to defecate in public as long as no one sees it, but now they are going to tighten it up

Wild campers are being blamed for the recent increase in human waste around popular attractions.

New Zealand law allows people to defecate in public as long as they believe they are not being seen. But this will now be hardened by the Wilderness Camping Association in response to the accusation that hikers are responsible for a large portion of the human end product that occurs in nature.

According to the current legislation, it is considered a violation for someone to go out or urinate in a public place (except in public toilets), but if the offender can prove that he assumed with good reason that no one could see him, he can avoid a fine of $ 200 (about 50,000 HUF).

The Responsible Campers Association will now tighten this regulation by stating that people must prove that they did their work at least 50 meters from the water’s edge and that they buried it at least 15 cm deep.

group spokesperson, Bob Osborne He says it’s not the behavior that’s the problem, it’s the ramifications of it. Wild camping has been in the headlines lately, because it’s becoming more and more trendy, and it’s being blamed on the human end products found in popular destinations. For this reason, several municipalities have banned them from their lands.

According to Osborne, their current proposal can only be a short-term solution, and the long-term goal should be to create more public toilets.
