Global Nature Fund – Newsletter
Issue: October 2019
Summer time is travel time, foreign countries and distant destinations lure you to spend the most beautiful time of the year relaxing. To ensure that rising tourism has as little negative impact as possible on biodiversity at the destination, the Global Nature Fund has been working for several years to ensure that, for example, natural resources are consciously taken into account at campsites in Europe, in hotel resorts in Latin America and the Caribbean and in the hotel and catering industry in Germany.
We take you with us to Honduras and Santo Domingo, where the reports by Marion Hammerl and Thomas Schaefer in the context of our project impressively describe the steps taken by hoteliers to promote sustainable travel offers despite local problems such as rubbish and untreated wastewater.
