We’re all more aware than ever of our carbon footprint. Ecotourism seeks not only to minimize our impact, but to inspire us toward further conservation of the earth’s resources and greater appreciation of its natural beauty. An ecotour might take you to the natural habitat of another species where you can observe their nesting rituals or other instinctual seasons. Perhaps you’ll travel to a national park and devote time to removing debris from its trails. Panama, Costa Rica, Florida – even islands in Michigan and other regions throughout the country offer beautiful preserves, largely untouched by industry and development. When you choose an ecotour, you choose to decrease your negative impact on the planet and increase its powerful impact on you.
