Sustainable Tourism :

Sustainable Tourism “ Tourism that takes full account of its current and future economic, social and environmental impacts, addressing the needs of visitors, the industry, the environment and host communities” - UNWTO

Biological Diversity:

Biological Diversity It is also called biodiversity , means the variability among living organisms from all sources including, inter alia, terrestrial, marine and other aquatic ecosystems and the ecological complexes of which they are part, this includes diversity within species, between species and of ecosystems.

Tourism Links to Biodiversity :

Tourism Links to Biodiversity Tourism and biodiversity are closely linked both in terms of impacts and dependency. Many types of tourism rely directly on ecosystem services and biodiversity (ecotourism, agri-tourism, wellness tourism, adventure tourism, etc.). Tourism uses recreational services and supply services provided by ecosystems. Tourists are looking for cultural and environmental authenticity, contact with local communities and learning about flora, fauna, ecosystems and their conservation.

PowerPoint Presentation:

On the other hand, too many tourists can also have a negative, degrading effect on biodiversity and ecosystems and the increased tourism forecast to biodiversity hotspot countries will require careful planning and management to avoid negative impacts on biodiversity. Therefore , the tourism sector has both a strong influence on biodiversity loss and a role to play in its conservation.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Sustainable tourism should: 1 ) Make optimal use of environmental resources that maintaining essential ecological processes and helping to conserve natural heritage and biodiversity. 2) Respect the socio-cultural authenticity of host communities, conserve their built and living cultural heritage and traditional values, and contribute to inter-cultural understanding and tolerance. Maintain a high level of tourist satisfaction and ensure a meaningful experience to the tourist raising their awareness about sustainability issues and promoting sustainable tourism practice amongst them .

PowerPoint Presentation:

Sustainable tourists can reduce the impact of tourism in many ways : Informing themselves of the  culture,  politics, and economy of the communities visited Anticipating and respecting local cultures, expectations and assumptions Contributing to intercultural understanding and tolerance Supporting the integrity of local cultures by favoring businesses which conserve cultural heritage and traditional values Supporting local economies by purchasing local goods and participating with small, local businesses Conserving resources by seeking out businesses that are environmentally conscious, and by using the least possible amount of non-renewable resources
