More people are travelling now than ever before. Given the rise of visitor arrivals and increased trips to natural areas including ecologically sensitive ones as well as places where local culture is a highlight, uphold ecotourism principles have become important so as to minimise negative impacts on people and the environment. Gaia Discovery’s publisher Mallika Naguran speaks to three industry experts for their views on ecotourism trends, developments and industry movements toward sustainability.
Communicating responsible actions and initiatives in tourism is important and Mallika Naguran of Gaia Discovery will share success stories at APeco2016 to be held from 21 to 23 October 2016 in Kuching, Sarawak.
Here’s how we can get the best out of our sojourns without causing disturbance and disruption to the environment, minimising carbon emissions and maximizing opportunities to enrich people’s lives.
