WHAT IS ECO TOURISM?

Ecotourism is ecologically sustainable tourism with a primary focus on experiencing natural areas that foster environmental and cultural understanding, appreciation and conservation.

HOW DOES AN OPERATOR GET ECO CERTIFICATION?

Operators are assessed on their economic, environmental, and social sustainability and ecotourism principles such as business ethics, responsible marketing, contribution to conservation and working with communities. There are three levels of accreditation available: Nature Tourism, Ecotourism and Advanced Ecotourism. Look for the logos with the operators you are considering.
