Eco-holidays

Tourism is the world's fastest growing industry. Beach holidays are not as popular as outdoor and adventure activities anymore, resulting in remote and fragile ecosystems receiving an influx of visitors. If not carefully managed, this pressure could damage the same natural areas that the visitors seek. How do we reach this balance between growth and conservation? Through education and awareness.

Ecotourism is nature-based travel to relatively undisturbed areas, with an emphasis on education. It occurs in all types of areas and protected ecosystems including mountains, deserts, savannahs and coastal areas.

ECO-DESTINATIONS
Your eco-destination choice should include an area that has plenty of protected landscapes and recreational areas, shared by locals and visitors. You should also look for signs that the local tourism development is not harming the culture and environment.

ECO-LODGES
Ecotourism helps preserve local customs, cultures and ecosystems when small groups visit locally owned ecolodges. When traveling, look for ecolodges that reflect local design, were built with local building materials and offer a natural setting that has been carefully preserved with indigenous landscaping.

Also check to see if the ecolodge uses renewable energy, has environmentally sensitive water and waste disposal systems, offers a variety of excursions and educational materials to natural and cultural sites and supports the local community and businesses.

ECO-TOURS
An eco-tour attempts to keep the highest percentage of the tourist dollars in the host country. Hiring local staff, buying locally farmed produce, using local guides, and purchasing locally made gifts all supports the local economy. So ask some questions and plan your next holiday the eco way! Future generations will thank you for it!
