Biotourism as a vehicle for building a better future


Innovative tourism services for regional growth and environmental protection

Prespa & Korçë 2013: In an age of accelerating globalization, tourism is one of the fastest developing industries worldwide. Untapped destinations are of particular interest to the growing tourist demographics, and the providers and stakeholders of this business. This is where Biotourism comes in. In an effort to avoid the
blunders of mass tourism where profit-led, and often foreign-owned, tourism providers run rampant in pristine areas destroying the very attractions that brought travelers in the first place, Biotourism generates a wholesome tourism system which ensures the preservation and enrichment of local lives and livelihoods. It weaves itself into the local ecosystem, local traditions and cultural roots, and creates fun and productive relationships between
travelers and destinations.
