Ecotourism is the responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment and improves the well-being of local people – quoted by the International Ecotourism Society
Our vision for tourism in the North West is that all experiences should provide powerful connections with wild places and be well managed and sustainable into the future.
Our guiding principles for green tourism are:
You, as an individual, play an important part in tackling climate change and helping us lower Tasmania’s greenhouse gas emissions through maintaining a ‘light footprint’ in the North West region.
We encourage visitors to do their part in maintaining and improving the natural condition of this amazing part of the world. Please take personal responsibility for your impact during your visit and find ways to lower your carbon footprint.
A ‘carbon footprint’ is the total amount of greenhouse gas emissions that result from our lifestyle. We can take a number of simple measures to lighten our carbon footprints.
If we purchase locally produced food, for example, we can cut back our personal emissions by reducing, or even eliminating food transport mileage.
