Leading Global Eco-Destinations

In the modern traveler’s bag is a profound concern for eco-friendly destinations and activities. Several tourist destinations have been designated primarily as eco-conscious and conservation centered. Below are some destinations that have been bold about conservation.

Palau

The Republic of Palau is a clear example of how far deliberate conservation efforts can go into preserving beauty. A county of over 500 islands, Palau boasts one of the world’s adorable diving destinations. Its colorful expansive coastal water is coated with a lining of extensive coral inhabited by over 1,000 kinds of fish. Conservation efforts have included designating over 400 miles of the coast to no-fishing. No wonder then that endangered fish species still thrive here. The beauty of Palau saw it feature on the 10th Season of the “Survivor” series.Learn more : http://wildark.com/travel/

Kenya

This east African nation is miraculously endowed with flora and fauna of breathtaking expanse. From mountains, lakes, rain forests, deserts and beaches, there is so much to say and see including the Big Five and the Great Wild Beast Migration. Taking to global trends, Kenya has been on the forefront in the fight against poaching and more than 1000 tons of illegal ivory have been burnt in a bid to conserve its magnanimous elephants.Learn more : http://www.huffingtonpost.com.au/2017/03/25/the-last-21-km-of-fenceline-between-david-pocock-and-his-wildest_a_21884731/

The Wild Ark, an organization working towards securing specific green belts globally has had significant input in Kenya’s conservation efforts. It has customized its travel experiences to eco-friendly and sustainable environmental impact ensuring that a trip with them leaves a positive impact to the specific destination.

Norwegian Fjords

The beauty of the scurry waterfalls, crystal-clear waters below and the snow coated mountains of the Norwegian Fjords would probably not add much to national pride, were it for conservation efforts. The rugged terrains of the fjords offer wonderful hiking and biking experiences. There is also plenty of wildlife species including seals, porpoises and seabirds. The traditional fishing villages around the fjords have a cultural diversity preserved for years.Learn more : http://wildark.com/study-the-wild/
