PNG has 100% potential for developing eco-tourism with its unique species of plants and animals

Published on : Tuesday, March 5, 2019

Papua New Guinea has 100 per cent potential for developing eco-tourism with its unique species of plants and animals that can attract visitors from around the world, said Nature Park general manager Michelle McGeorge.

 

To quote McGeorge, “Most of the species of plants and animals are unique and they are not found anywhere around the world.”

 

McGeorge said that there were many animal species including tree kangaroo, wallabies, hundreds of frog species, birds of paradise, lots of reptiles, lots of parrot species, and numerous species of plants that are only native to PNG. People from over the world can come to PNG to see the wildlife and conservation efforts being made, she said.

 

McGeorge added that PNG has only one per cent of the world’s
landmass but has more than seven per cent of the world’s unique biodiversity. However, there are challenges too. “If foreigners come here, we make sure they feel safe,” she said. “We have already seen eco-tourism is starting to grow.”

 

Plants and animals need protection, preservation and sustainable management and efforts need to be made regarding these.
