Responsible tourism: Dominica nature tour, small group

Environment

The governments of the island included in this holiday is actively involved in promoting green business and is devoting time, energy and resources to conserving its natural beauty. Recognising that the main source of income for the island is tourism, officials have taken measures to ensure that they and their visitors are good stewards to the environment.

Dominica, is the ideal destination for the eco-minded tourist, as there is so little development here and 80 percent of the island is still untouched. It is the first country ever to receive benchmark designation from the prestigious eco-tourism organization, Green Globe 21, an unprecedented nod to the islandís commitment to sustainable, environmentally sensitive tourism.

Reflecting the need to protect and preserve its rich natural environment, both above and below sea level, Dominica has a number of national parks and forest and marine reserves. On this holiday, you will visit several of these and the park fees that are charged, help in their conservation and have been included in the price of the holiday. On the included tours, you will be accompanied by well-trained and experienced local guides, who are familiar with their environment and are responsible for protecting it. The nature and birding guides live and work in the area and are best placed to know where to find the various species of flora and fauna.

Community

Dominica rightly deserves the title of 'Nature island of the Caribbean'. A wonderful, unique, natural environment, so far minimally impacted by the effects of human habitation, which makes Dominica so very special. The island has worked hard to promote itself as an 'eco-tourism' destination.

This tour will bring you right to the heart of the island communities, with plenty of opportunity to interact with the locals, learn about their culture, eat delicious meals at locally owned restaurants and shop for handicrafts made in the traditional way by local craftsmen. and to enjoy their company.

The local guides who will accompany you on this tour, can offer advice on how to preserve the delicate balance of the local environment, as well as being familiar with local community life and history and will be delighted to share their knowledge with you.

The hotels at which you will stay are both owner-managed and employ only people from their community throughout their properties - for construction, maintenance, gardening, and the restaurant and hotel operation. In addition, they both operate on the very best of 'green' principles.
