What is survival and bushcraft?

Survival and bushcraft is all about wilderness survival skills. It’s a combination of skills and knowledge that will let you thrive and live in the bush. It’s also about having the ability to survive in all environments.

Survival: you want out and a quick rescue is the best rescue.

In bushcraft, you want to go in and learn the skills from the indigenous population of different country’s so that in a survival situation, should your rescue not be quick, you are better equipped mentally and practically to deal with it.
