Eduardo Coelho Pousada Flutuante Uakari Floating LodgeThe link between conservation efforts and tourism in the Amazon became stronger after Rio Earth Summit in 1992. By then, the Mamirauá Institute for Sustainable Development was expanding its impact around a special floodplain forest area of the Amazon - more specifically the 1,124,000 hectares between the Amazon and Japurá Rivers that houses endemic species such as the White Uakari Monkey.

That area, later, with the work of the Institute, became the first Sustainable Development protected area in Brazil.

The researchers at Mamirauá always believed that the local communities (approximately 10,000 people), who occupied the area for generations, should be the main guardians of the land.

Salmon Farms in ChileChile was recently awarded the distinction of being one of the most sustainable travel destinations. The reality is that we Chileans still have a long path ahead until we can take on the responsibility that this recognition provides.

Our country is one of the richest in the world when it comes to natural and dramatic landscapes. It’s this diversity of the land that gives us the perfect scenario for adventure and nature travel.

Elephants of Southern AfricaGood news: there are too many elephants!

Bad news: there are too many elephants!

With so many environmental groups fighting to prevent poaching of these impressive beasts for their ivory tusks, it is ironic that there is over-population in the parks I recently visited in Botswana, Zimbabwe, and Zambia with Overseas Adventure Travel.

An estimated 120,000 elephants roam the vast, unfenced preserves under the protection of armed, patrolling rangers.

Madagascar Tourism Helping CommunitiesAcross Africa, the transformational abilities of tourism have proven invaluable in helping to repair the relationship between people and planet. Sustainable certification standards, like those instituted by South Africa's Fair Trade Tourism, have ushered in new awareness for tourism that benefits communities socially, economically and environmentally.

This awareness has translated into action on the island of Madagascar. A country of startling contrasts, its incredible natural beauty and unique ecosystems are offset by a rapidly expanding and largely impoverished population, threatening species found nowhere else on earth.

Male Gaur asiatic wild ox at Nagarahole wildlife sanctuaryThe vast and diverse landscape of India is embedded with a rich biosphere that is home to myriad species of flora and fauna.

I believe that with the evolution of technology and infrastructural development in India, today, there is a perpetual conflict between the Indian wildlife and humans.

Alaska AdventureAlaska is one of the least-densely populated places in the world, and much of the state remains wild and road-less. Travel to Alaska typically focuses on these remote areas, and enjoying the stunning scenery and abundant wildlife they offer.

To ensure that nature and eco-travel can continue, we must be stewards for the natural environment so that wild places like these remain for future generations to enjoy.

Responsible Tourism Campaign of Animal WelfareIn an increasingly urbanized world, wildlife tourism is gaining more and more popularity, and many travellers choose to spend their holidays getting to know – even volunteering with, wild animals.

Unfortunately, in the vast majority of activities with animals, what we see are creatures torn away from their natural habitat and placed into an artificial one where they suffer and are forced to perform in ways which are unnatural for them.

Every year, travellers, volunteers and animal lovers unwittingly contribute to the cruel exploitation of those very same animals they so badly wanted to see and help.
