In the 1990s, I worked on community ecotourism projects in the South Pacific with WWF. Ten years later, I began to question whether travelling to the other side of the world to stay at an eco-lodge can ever really be sustainable. After making Oceania my niche in the early years, I now try to focus on islands and destinations closer to home, ideally ones that can be reached without flying. Here are a few clippings from Condé Nast Traveller of news pieces about sustainable tourism. There are others on the websites of Daily and Sunday Telegraph and Financial Times. Come back later to see more as I slowly scan and upload from my archives, i.e, endless piles of magazines and box-files of clippings.
