Eco-tourism is a community-based philosophy and commitment to preserving and sharing their unique community resources. North Carolina's Center for Sustainable Tourism provides resources and information to help you develop your area's ecotourism.
Businesses involved with eco-tourism need to "walk the walk" - i.e. they must practice green practices in all areas of their business. On the right,
you will find resources to help. There are more resources in the Green Business Practices section of the Tools for Business.
We have also included resources from the state of Texas that give ideas on developing, managing, and marketing an eco-tourism business.
