What is Responsible Tourism?
The aim of Responsible Tourism is to enhance the positive and to reduce the impact tourism can make at a destination. Responsible travel is about everyone taking responsibility for their actions, from tour operators to local governments, to the host communities and tourists themselves.
This module of the Responsible Travel Course explores how to minimise the negative economic & social impacts, and adopt environmentally friendly practices that contribute to and support local animal and conservation efforts.
Understanding Responsible Voluntourism
Some of the most endangered animals of the world are found in dream holiday destinations. Orang-utans remain synonymous to Borneo, tigers to India and lions to Africa.
Responsible tourism can be used as a tool for endangered animal conservation. This module explores responsible ways in which to volunteer or to work with animals.
Animal Welfare, Conservation & Tourism 1
Animal welfare considerations are an important issue within the responsible tourism agenda. This module explores which types of tourism are acceptable and promote conservation and the well being of animals.
Animal Welfare, Conservation & Tourism 2
Primates help define a destination. Gorilla to Uganda and Rwanda. Orangutans to Borneo etc. For many, this has become one of the motivation factors to travel to that destination. The tourism revenue is very significant to tourism and wildlife and the local government.
This module explores the potential negative impacts of tourism on primates & how carefully managed tourism helps to minimise potential negative impacts on animals.
