Tourism and Conservation – Sustainable Models and Strategies

This toolkit includes two different publications developed with support of USAID aimed at linking tourism and conservation in a sustainable way. The first document was developed by Solimar under USAID’s Program for Management of Aquatic Resources and Economic Alternatives (MAREA). The “Sea Turtles Tourism Conservation Models” describe six conservation models that link sustainable tourism, biodiversity conservation, and community development. This document also contains The Nature Conservancy’s “The Threshold of Sustainability for Tourism within Protected Areas: A Quick Guide for Protected Area Practitioners” document, which provides a framework for responding rapidly to crises originating for tourism and visitation.
