The survival of an individual does not depend only on luck, on keeping calm and on rationality, but also on knowledge. Doing the right thing, the most appropriate, at the right time, under certain conditions, can mean staying alive.
The set of all those techniques and knowledge suitable for living in a given habitat is called "bushcraft". The English term, which combines bush (forest) and craft (ability), refers to all those primitive notions and skills that have helped man to evolve and that have been imprinted on our DNA since the dawn of time. Bushcraft does not rely on modern technology, but gives priority to the use of a few elements to survive in a natural environment.
The Wolves Outdoor Academy is made up of survival techniques and bushcraft instructors, national and international hiking and environmental guides, educators, experts in experimental archeology, enthusiasts coaches of outdoor disciplines.
