Cooperation with Linking Tourism & Conservation

There is a need for sustainable management of the protected areas in Bulgaria. However, this task is difficult to perform since the majority institutions managing the protected areas are constantly underfunded.

This is where the tourism comes as a mean to support the conservation efforts. If a proper tourism strategy and application is in place, then this could result in a sustainable management of a tourist destination.

What if tourism could save the world’s protected areas?

Consider that the annual cost for effective management of the complete global network of protected areas is estimated to be only one half of one percent of annual world tourism turnover. And, according to the IUCN, more than fifty percent of all tourists visiting a foreign country make use of protected natural areas in some way.

Linking Tourism & Conservation (LT&C) is based on the compelling idea that tourism, the industry that benefits so much from protected natural areas, can play the most critical role in ensuring their sustained and effective management world-wide. By identifying and highlighting specific examples, LT&C facilitates the sharing of knowledge, experience and effective practices that mutually benefit tourism and nature conservation in protected areas.

We are happy to announce that we will cooperate with Linking Tourism & Conservation (LT&C) in order to find good examples of tourism destinations in Bulgaria that are managed in a sustainable manner.
