Survival techniques are skills that a person may use in order to sustain life in any type of natural environment. These survival techniques are meant to provide basic necessities for human life which include water, food, and shelter. The survival techniques also support proper knowledge and interactions with animals and plants to promote the sustaining of life over a period of time. Survival techniques are often basic ideas and abilities that ancients invented and used themselves for thousands of years. Outdoor activities such as hiking, backpacking, horseback riding, fishing, and hunting all require basic wilderness survival skills, especially in handling emergency situations. Bushcraft and primitive living are most often self-implemented, but require many of the same techniques.
So you will recognize that most of these survival techniques are basic primitive life skills learned over centuries by mankind in different areas of the world but that have been forgotten in many areas due to the advancements in technologies. We can however use these same new technologies to make the survival techniques more efficient and resort back to basic survival skills with more basic tools when we need to.
Here’s a few handy tips and tricks that may just come in useful one day.
