Nature Positive Tourism – Online Training

Join 3 webinars where you will be given an introduction to nature-positive tourism with an explanation of the tourism industry, conservation trends including rewilding, community engagement, and more.

About this course

Nature positive tourism aims to reduce and limit harm to wildlife and habitats, and actively leaves them with more protection and support. We believe that nature based tourism needs to move towards a regenerative industry that protects wildlife and habitats, supports the rewilding of natural areas, and is mutually beneficial for both tourism entrepreneurs and for nature.

A serene woodland cabin serves as the setting for an online webinar as a component of the Nature Positive Tourism Course.
