UK is taking serious interest in ecotourism

Published on : Friday, January 20, 2017

UK ecotourismResponsible tourism and ecotourism has evolved a lot in the last few years. Organizations such as Earthwatch, Biosphere Expeditions and Blue Ventures offering wildlife research trips with a strong focus on benefiting nature. Protecting such majestic creatures as lions and elephants is hugely rewarding. However, there is less scope for Britain for choosing holidays with direct positive impact on wildlife and habitat. The UK is one of the most nature-depleted countries of the world and conservation via tourism has not been developed to its full potential.

 
However, all this can change with an exemplary programme of UK wildlife conservation holidays, designed by Wild Days to support the work of the Suffolk Coast and Heaths AONB, the National Trust and the RSPB. This can prove to be a successful and sustainable model for ecotourism in the UK. Wild Days holidays offer hands-on opportunities allowing volunteers to not only see but also handle wildlife as they record key characteristics of small mammals before releasing them back into the wild. This is significant considering that 2017 is the international year of sustainable development through tourism declared by the UNWTO.

 
Currently, there is immense interest for wildlife-watching holidays in Britain. Eco holidays go one step further by engaging with wildlife and natural areas that are under threat and directly contributing to their protection. Few organizations that are doing eco tourism well in the UK include: National Trust working holidays, Trees for Life in Scotland and Waterways Canal Camps.
