What is Ecotourism?
This is tourism that is directed towards natural environments, intended to support conservation efforts and observe wildlife.
In Trinidad and Tobago, there is a tremendous potential and opportunities for growth in the ecotourism sector. We want to help people understand this potential, and guide them toward establishing businesses in this tourism sub-sector.
This programme will equip people with the knowledge, attitudes and practices to effectively create, develop, market and manage new ecotourism products. It comprises a number of short modules for entrepreneurs and employees of small ecotourism enterprises. These enterprises include restaurants and house kitchens, bed and breakfast accommodation, tour guiding and tour operations, eco-lodges etc.
