Survival skills are simple, how to hacks that look good in videos and sound interesting when you show them at parties, but they could save your life when you are outdoors in the wilderness.
So what are survival skills? Put simply, they are survival techniques a person can use to increase their chances of living and surviving in any environment, whether it be in a tropical jungle or an arid desert.
Survival skills are also one of the oldest concepts in the survival world. Our ancestors used such skills before there were handy lighters, knives, axes and compact water filters to preserve their own existence. Since then those skills have been adapted to create innovations such as lighters, matches, industrial water purification, electricity, and medicine.
