What is Ecotourism?

As stated by The International Ecotourism Society (TIES), ecotourism means “responsible travel to natural areas which conserves the environment and improves the welfare of local people”.

What are some places that can be considered ecotourism destinations?

National Parks: By including these natural areas in our travelling, we support conservation of wild spaces and species.

Marine Protected Areas: to protect biodiversity whenever possible visiting these areas as sometimes access is restricted

Sanctuaries: These sites exist to protect biodiversity and species. Through donations or volunteering and sharing we can help to attract more visitors

Cultural local events: When we offer incentives or donations, we help to keep traditions alive and support local communities.
