The growing global tourism industry offers incredible growth opportunities – particularly in sustainable and animal-friendly tourism. Tourists love seeing animals in their natural habitats, but local tourism operators also need to protect the animals and environments they rely on. This hands-on, industry-oriented program trains future tourism leaders with the skills to maintain and enhance environmental integrity alongside industry growth.
