The Arctic: where tourism meets conservation

Greenland hit the headlines this week after a vast block of ice broke off from the country's Petermann Glacier. The 600-foot thick iceberg is around four times the size of Manhattan. Researchers monitoring the Greenland ice sheet have said it represents the largest single shedding of Greenland's ice sheet in fifty years.

Breakages from Greenland's ice sheet (a process known as 'calving'), are not uncommon and hundreds occur naturally every year. But the sheer size of the most recent separation from the ice sheet has once again focused attention on changing conditions in the Arctic.

GRID-Arendal in Norway, a collaborating centre of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), closely monitors changes in the Arctic climate and promotes conservation initiatives in the polar region.

Peter Prokosch, Director of GRID-Arendal, says the science world is in agreement that recent years have seen a net loss of ice mass in Greenland.

"Today, we are seeing a much faster rate of iceberg calving than in previous years", explains Mr. Prokosch. But as well as the losses in Greenland, Arctic sea ice, which covers the oceans around the North Pole, is melting at higher speeds every year. This means less ice remaining in late summer and subsequent habitat loss for polar bears and other species. A reduction in ice also means less 'white reflection' of solar energy, which contributes to further warming of the region.

Data from last month shows that the total sea ice cover in the Arctic was at its second-lowest level for July in over three decades. Last month, some 70,000 square kilometers of Arctic ice was lost through melting each day.

So what can be done to protect the Arctic's unique habitats? Those at the UNEP/GRID-Arendal centre believe a new brand of tourism could hold part of the answer.

Svalbard - a picturesque archipelago in the north of Norway - is a case in point. The region is a popular tourist destination and is usually the closest point that visitors can get to the North Pole, which lies 1000 kilometres away.

A joint campaign by conservation groups and tour operators in the 1990s has helped to establish protected areas in Svalbard and new laws that protect biodiversity. Native animal species such as polar bears now have protected status in Svalbard and the hunting of many species has been outlawed.

After witnessing this success on their doorstep, the team from the UNEP/GRID-Arendal centre developed the "Linking Tourism and Conservation" (LT&C) initiative. The project will investigate how sustainable tourism can help support the management and development of protected areas.

Later this month, UNEP/GRID-Arendal will host a study expedition to Svalbard for conservationists, journalists and members of the public. A further tour of Antarctica is planned for November, when participants will learn about the development of marine protected areas in the Southern hemisphere.

"Hardly anywhere else than in the Polar regions is it so easy to convince people to support and invest in protecting our planet", says Mr. Prokosch. "This is because the polar regions are the ideal place to see the link between the impact of climate change and biodiversity. Good examples, like this cold face of climate change, should inspire similar projects in other tourism areas."

UNEP/GRID-Arendal also plans to produce an interactive map of tourist destinations that are participating in conservation work. It is hoped that the map will encourage investment in tourism projects that support conservation and will allow tourists to view a destination's green credentials before finalising their trip.

Tourism represents both the challenges and opportunities for combating climate change and protecting biodiversity. As the UNEP/GRID-Arendal's expeditions set sail for Svalbard later this month, it is hoped that lessons learned in Norway will inspire conservation efforts from the Amazon to the Serengeti - and in many other tourist destinations across the globe.

TUI UK brands launch Holidays Forever

All Thomson and First Choice’s sustainable tourism initiatives have been brought together under an umbrella brand, Holidays Forever.

TUI said Holidays Forever represents the next stage of the company’s sustainable development strategy and aims to get its customers to support sustainable tourism ‘to help preserve their holidays long into the future’.

The new brand, launched during Make Holidays Greener Week, will also be used to raise awareness of sustainable tourism among employees.

Holidays Forever encompasses 20 sustainable commitments that Thomson and First Choice have pledged to achieve.

These include reducing the carbon emissions from TUI Travel airlines by 6% by 2014, working towards having all of its suppliers being graded to Travelife standard by 2014 and aiming to recycle 30% of the cans it hands out onboard its flights, equating to 13 tonnes of aluminium in the next year.

Travelife is ABTA's online directory of environmentally friendly holidays.

Holidays Forever was launched following customer research that found 96% of holidaymakers care about protecting the local environment and wildlife in the resorts they visit.

A further 83% said they appreciate advice from a tour operator on how to make their holiday more environmentally and socially responsible when they’re abroad, while 73% want to be able to easily identify a greener holiday.

When compared with First Choice research carried out five years ago, customers are now more familiar with the concept of sustainable tourism, but although the percentage of people recycling has increased, they are still less likely to recycle on holiday than at home.

TUI is planning to launch Holidays Forever microsites for both brands, which will be fully functional by the end of July.

Jane Ashton, head of sustainable development, said: ‘We appreciate our holidays have an impact on the environment and the people who live and work in our destinations across the planet.

‘While we are proud of the efforts we have made to date, we recognise that we are still at the start of our sustainability journey.’

GPS-Based App "Green Travel Choice" Makes CO2 Reduction Simple for Responsible Travelers

The leading environmental organizations The International Ecotourism Society (TIES) and Cleaner Climate have joined forces as partners to launch a new GPS based CO2 tracker developed by Pocketweb Ltd, the provider of Pocket Life, an award-winning location-based web and mobile platform.

Named “Green Travel Choice” (www.GreenTravelChoice.com), the new application gives responsible travelers a simple and effective way to make informed travel choices, helping reduce the carbon footprint of their journeys – whether it’s the next trip overseas or just a ride downtown.

With only two clicks, the Green Travel Choice map will show possible travel options (out of nine typical modes of transport) for your route and the expected CO2 emissions for each transport option.

When you download the Green Travel Choice app, you will also receive a US$15 voucher to join The International Ecotourism Society (TIES) as a Traveler member. “TIES team is excited to support and be part of this joint initiative to raise awareness of the climate impact of individual travelers,” says Ayako Ezaki, TIES Director of Communications, "Green Travel Choice is not your usual carbon calculator; it offers a new and innovative – and fun – approach to measuring and managing your footprint."

Unlike other tools that offer static carbon calculation, Green Travel Choice allows you to track and monitor your emissions as you move. The application includes the Travel Logbook function that stores information on each trip, serving as a summary of your travel carbon footprint over time. At any time, you can use this information to optimize your CO2 saving, offset your emissions or share your numbers with your friends, colleagues, and sustainability programs at your workplace.

According to Ben Muir, Managing Director of Cleaner Climate, the average motorist in Australia emits around 0.08kg (0.2lbs) of CO2 every week in car travel related emissions. “With the Green Travel Choice application, you can design a weekly route incorporating low-carbon alternatives to car travel and reduce your motoring carbon footprint significantly as well as the related costs such as fuel and vehicle maintenance.”

The partnership approach of Green Travel Choice helps to continually drive clean technology innovation, as well as helping incorporate carbon footprint awareness into consumers’ everyday travel choices. “The Green Travel Choice app,” adds Muir, “is also a unique and innovate way of promoting and supporting clean energy investment, so we are thrilled to be a part of such an exciting development.”

Green Travel Choice is available on the iPhone App Store now.

Israel Tourism Launches Green Travel Itineraries

This Earth Day, Israel's Ministry of Tourism, North America is launching a 24-month promotion underscoring Israel's pivotal role in the worldwide environmental movement: ISRAEL: ONE HUNDRED YEARS OF GREEN.

For the next two years, the Israel Ministry of Tourism will make this a key message to potential travelers to Israel. A special ONE HUNDRED YEARS OF GREEN brochure will debut at New York's Earth Fair 2010 at Grand Central, and the new website and blog (travelgreenisrael.com) will feature regularly updated news on green innovations and travel tips.

For many destinations around the world, latching on to the "green" bandwagon is all the rage. In Israel, these practices and ideologies have long been implemented into every aspect of Israeli life. Starting in the first decade of the 20th century, a historic movement was born designed to restore Israel's forests and to transform a distressed landscape. The first kibbutz, Degania, was founded on the shore of the Sea of Galilee in 1910, giving a practical boost to the dream of making the desert bloom.

"A century ago, the land of Israel was an ecological disaster," says Arie Sommer, Israel Tourism Commission for North and South America, "four centuries of Ottoman rule had seen millions of trees cut down for one simple reason - property taxes were calculated by the number of trees owned by landowners.

A hundred years later, Israel remains a leader in the green movement. Better Place electric cars will launch in Israel this year; Tel Aviv's largest garbage dump has been transformed into an urban park; Tel Aviv's mayor has set a green standard for all hotels; and Israel leads the world in the number of trees planted per acre during the last century.

National Sustainable Tourism Master Plan Kicks Off

A Kick-Off stakeholder workshop was held at the Radisson Fort George Hotel on Friday April 23, 2010 to conclude "Phase 0" within the development of the National Sustainable Tourism Master Plan.

The workshop ended a four day tour of destinations within Belize by "Tourism and Leisure" consultants Juan Manuel Ribera (Team Leader) and Gustavo Bassotti (Project Coordinator, Sustainable Tourism Development Specialist).

Recognizing the cross-sectoral nature of the tourism industry, representatives from the private sector, multiple Government Departments, and NGOs were introduced to the mission and objectives of the project, and invited to share first-hand knowledge of the current status of the Belize tourism industry. Valuable input was provided by the stakeholders through an assessment of the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats, including identification of Belize’s assets and destinations for future tourism development.

Without a clear plan Mr. Bassotti stressed that Belize would experience higher negative environmental and social impacts from tourism, would not enjoy the maximum potential economic benefits, and the industry would suffer from a lack of leadership. He noted the importance of ensuring that tourism activities benefit the local residents to assure sustainability.

Following this preliminary insight into the tourism offering, for the next two months firm "Tourism and Leisure" will implement the first phase of the project involving data collection and analysis in the areas of tourism demand, supply, competitors, governance and best practice. A larger team, including a policy expert, economist and tourism physical planner will be in-country in early May to carry out interviews, surveys and destination visits throughout the country along with local counterparts. It is envisaged that the final draft of the National Sustainable Tourism Master Plan will be completed by the end of the year, prior to the finalization of more detailed plans for San Ignacio, Belize City, Placencia Peninsula and Ambergris Caye.

The development of the National Sustainable Tourism Master Plan is a component under the Sustainable Tourism Program (STP). Funding for the US$15million Sustainable Tourism Program is provided by the Government of Belize through an IDB loan, the Belize Tourism Board, and the Ministry of Tourism, Civil Aviation and Culture. For more information about the program please contact the Project Co-ordinating Unit at info@sustainabletourismbz.org or visit the STP website www.sustainabletourismbz.org

India bans Tiger tourism - historic moment in ecotourism

The Indian Government has banned Tiger tourism in the core regions of most of its National Reserves in a desperate effort to protect fast diminishing Tiger populations that are being 'loved to death' by tourism.

This announcement marks an historic moment in the history of ecotourism. By banning tourism the Government has effectively admitted its historic inability or unwillingness to properly manage Tiger tourism.

Largely unregulated tourism development has resulted in new lodges being built in sensitive areas within the Reserves, new hotels have blocked corridors between protected areas used by Tigers. There has been little or no enforcement of guidelines for wildlife guides designed to help minimise disruption to Tigers, and tourist numbers have spiralled without any real consideration of the impact on Tigers.

It is the creep of unregulated tourism by irresponsible tourism businesses that the Parks Board and Government have turned a blind eye to which has contributed to the reduction in Tiger numbers. Many responsible tourism businesses have worked very hard for Tiger conservation in India, and we market many of these holidays. I am extremely sad for these businesses and the communities they help support.

As India has been unable to manage responsible Tiger tourism responsibletravel.com reluctantly agrees that a temporary ban is necessary at this critical stage. We would hope that in the future properly regulated and managed responsible Tiger tourism can resume. The drop in tourism revenues that support such conservation measures as do exist will have to be met by the Government.

However it is important to remember that it is not tourists which are the biggest threat to Tigers, but poachers killing Tigers for their body parts used in traditional Chinese medicine. Efforts to educate the consumers of these products about the consequences to Tiger populations, and to tackle the poaching overlords need to be stepped up.

Of great concern to responsibletravel.com is loss of incomes and livelihoods for local communities who provide services to the tourism industry. They already face the 'opportunity' costs of NOT utilising the Reserves for firewood, grazing and water and now their ability to earn an income from the Reserves is reduced.

If no alternative sources of income or compensation are forthcoming we predict greater tensions between communities and Parks authorities to the detriment of Tiger conservation. The Head of India's National Tiger Conservation Authority states that local people will be removed from core Tiger habitats. If not handled well this has the potential to further damage relations with local communities.

It's very sad that it's come to this, let's hope it's not too late.
