Leisure, Tourism, Heritage, Biocaching


One of the latest dimensions of geocaching stems from its use as a learning tool in the field of biology (with connection to all life and earth sciences), assuming the name o f biocaching. This particular narrow strand binding botany (phytogeographical) makes this activity a tool to consider in particular the strategies of protection and valorization of the natural biotic heritage, apart from its potential as a leisure activity outdoors.
By way of preliminary approach, it is intended to emphasize the theoretical-conceptual framework underlying this theme, with a review of the scientific literature, as well as clarifying the empirical aspect (which includes the presentation of the outlines of a concrete example of implementation in close coordination to notable trees/of public interest and additional equity domains).
