Eco travel rules
We all love to travel. For some, it’s a vacation; for others, it’s a lifestyle. In any case, a person leaves his mark at every point of his stay, and sometimes this mark is not the best.
Which beach do you prefer? Wide, cozy, clean, with even rows of sun loungers or squares of towels. Or large, but with soft sand, littered with debris and cigarette butts? Or maybe you prefer hiking? But wandering through the forests and hills will be problematic if these very forests are on fire. I think the choice is obvious. But it depends only on you how they will remain after you leave. Today I want to talk about the principles of ecotourism and how you can travel environmentally.
There are ten ecotourist rules formulated by the International Ecotourism Organization (TIES):
  1. remember the vulnerability of the Earth;
  2. leave only traces, take away only photographs;
  3. to get to know the world into which he fell: the culture of peoples, geography;
  4. respect local people;
  5. not to buy products from manufacturers that endanger the environment;
  6. always follow only well-trodden paths;
  7. support programs to protect the environment;
  8. where possible, use conservation techniques;
  9. support organizations that promote the protection of nature;
  10. travel with companies that support the principles of ecotourism.

There are only three points to define a real eco-vacation:
  1. knowledge of nature;
  2. conservation of ecosystems;
  3. respect for the interests of residents.

If at least one of them is missing, then this is no longer ecotourism.
