BI 101 Laukkanen: Get Started

What is ecotourism?

According to the International Ecotourism Society, ecotourism is:

“responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment, sustains the well-being of the local people, and involves interpretation and education”

The island country of Palua requires visitors to sign a pledge to "preserve and protect" the island environment.  Read about it in a National Geographic article from 2017.

To find ecotourism destinations, do a Web search for ecotourism places. You'll find lots of ideas!

If you want to search by country, use the country name and the word ecotourism. For example, montenegro ecotourism.
