What is the difference between 'Bushcraft' and 'Survival'?

Quite simply, Bushcraft is when survival skills are learnt and practiced, so if in the unfortunate event that you need to survive in the wild, you will have both the knowledge and the skills to apply them to your situation.

Bushcraft has been increasing in popularity since it has been shown on TV with presenters like Bear Grylls and Ray Mears. It's great to see so many people finding an interest in the Great Outdoors through this outlet.
