The Lake district has issues with traffic, erosion and protecting wildlife.
- Coping with Traffic - Public transport being improved to make the national park more accessable. "Give the driver a break" give leafets informing of public transport and gives discounts to tourist who present train and bs tickets at cafes and lake cruises.
- Coping with footpath erosion - resting popular routes and chaning the line pf path and using less vunerable areas. Also using hard wearing material. Eg at Tans Hows some paths have been covered with soil and reseeded and main routes has been gravelled to protect it.
- Protecting wildlife - Tourist encouraged to be responsible by clsoing gates and taking litter home, signpost reminding them of this. Also, bins are provided at popular sites.
