Sustainable Tourism & Habitat Conservation: Responsible Travel Guide Released

Ever Wonder Adventure, an online resource on sustainability, has released a new guide with recommendations on eco-friendly tourism.

With overtourism becoming an increasingly pressing issue in many parts of the world, Ever Wonder Adventure aims to highlight the impacts it has on climate change and environmental degradation. The new guide also explores ways for readers to visit tourist attractions responsibly.

One article by National Geographic notes that overtourism can have a significant impact on ecosystems in regions that are popular travel destinations. For example, coral reefs in the Great Barrier Reef and Maya Bay have been degrading at a startling pace due to excessive snorkeling, boating, and handling. The United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) states that by 2030, transport-related carbon emissions from tourism are projected to increase by 25% compared to 2016 levels.

Ever Wonder Adventure says that overtourism can also have socio-economic implications, as locals are at risk of being displaced when tourism becomes the sole economic driver of a region. This can also result in exploitation, cultural appropriation, and the loss of tradition. Furthermore, tourist activities tend to generate large amounts of waste, leading to pollution in local communities.

However, sustainable tourism can play a vital role in preserving ecosystems, and many natural habitats are now protected due to their value as tourist destinations. To contribute to these efforts, Ever Wonder Adventure encourages readers to choose eco-certified operators, travel only to destinations accessible by sustainable travel options, and engage in low-impact activities. Additionally, they can support native communities by dining at and purchasing souvenirs from local businesses, minimizing waste, and respecting local customs.

Readers can also keep themselves informed with the UNWTO’s Sustainable Tourism Development Index (STDI) and Travel & Tourism Development Index (TTDI), which measure countries’ progress toward sustainable tourism. These indices cover eco-friendly infrastructure development, wealth equity, and visitor quotas, allowing travelers to determine which regions are committed to responsible practices and plan their trips accordingly.
