It’s a bad day for ecolodges.
Abandoned should be the theme parks near radioactive sites, not the eco-minded, community-minded lodges in the wilderness. But here we are in 2016 when many of the early adoptions of ecotourism are now maturing in their 20s and 30s. Some are working, some are not.
- What are the histories of Ariaú Amazon Tower and Huaorani Ecolodge?
- What failed?
- What’s it like to run an ecolodge?
- In regional contexts, what should be known about visiting parks and wilderness in your country?
Kudos: HT Ariane Janér and Irene Lane for posts in Global Ecotourism Network
Its a very sad moment for the Huaorani Ecolodge, an emblematic ecotourism initiative in Ecuador.
