Ecotourism simply means travelling and protecting natural places to make local people’s lives better. With ecotourism and the fast growing concerns of the environment around the world, you can make responsible decisions to travel.

You can travel to different ecotourism sites and location around the world. In America, there are several active ecotourism spots, such as those in Hawaii, Alaska, Virginia and West Virginia. Apostle Island National Lakeshore in Wisconsin is one of the sustainable national parks in America as well as Great Basin National Park in Nevada and Wrangell-St. Elias Park and Preserve in Alaska.

You can check for travel agencies that attend to environmental factors. Create a travel plan that lessen the effect to environment like making sure not to buy items made from endangered species and explore different means of travelling that avoids pollution and other environmental disturbances. Also, check if the business you consider won an eco-award or has eco-label rating. The proof or certificates exhibit the commitment of a certain business to the environment.
