“Ecotourism is about uniting conservation, communities and sustainable travel” – The International Ecotourism Society (TIES)
In many ways, careers in ecotourism have it all: the ability to make a difference for wildlife, habitats and local communities; the adventure and excitement of travel; meaningful global connections; and perhaps even a chance to explore your entrepreneurial side.
Careers in ecotourism can also offer more opportunities (and pay) than other highly-competitive Conservation Job Types that rely primarily on donor funding.
