THE COMMUNITY TOURISM WE DESERVE

The Environmental Education Center

We need to have community tourism that deals with environment in high sense. Maintains the biodiversity and does not compromise its elements. We dream about a tourism through which no rare wild flowers are picked, no bird habitats are destroyed, no tall and very old trees are cut, but to have a tourism that contributes to their proliferation, scattering seeds, planting seedlings and to be protected by all means. We further dream about a community tourism during which no bonfires are lit in the fields, natural areas and reserves; a tourism that does not transform beautiful wilderness into a random dumps, but it teaches children the name of sites, trees, plants, birds and everything.
