Ecotourism Society of India (ESOI)
‘Winds of change’ are blowing across the tourism industry in India. The stark realities of the negative impacts on the environment, ecology and local community are dawning on service providers across the country. This realization is slowly transforming into environmentally responsible and sustainable tourism practices. The Lodges, Resorts, Parks and the travel trade operating in eco-sensitive, natural areas are not only educating travellers but also giving thoughts and action to conservation, pollution, waste management and community development. Changes that are visible!
Government agencies, both at the Centre and in the States, have been formulating & implementing laws, policies and guidelines to protect wildlife, nature and the environment. and giving priority to climate change, carbon footprint and tabulating carrying capacity, to check and minimize the negative impacts.
We realize the enormity of the tasks at hand and still have a long way to go, so that we can leave the nature and all its glory for the generations to come.
Ecotourism Society of India (ESOI) was thus formed to give impetus to this movement for responsible and sustainable tourism practices across the country; and to facilitate and support synergy of policies, initiatives and activities at the National and State level among all players.
