Support Ecotourism in Ujung Kulon :
What is Ecotourism ?
“Responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment and improves the well-being of local people" [Def: The (International) Ecotourism Society 1990] Ecotourism must contain three basic elements for it to be complete:
It must provide for environmental conservation.
It must include meaningful local community participation.
It must be viable profitably to enable it to sustain itself.
Environmental Education – raising awareness and appreciation in the people, both within the state and in the visitors from outside, for the diverse biodiversity, culture and unique ecological values; to care for natural heritage and alongside to create an income base for the community---an incentive for the future protection of natural assets.
Decentralized and equitable nature based tourism, avoiding bottlenecks and overdevelopment of individual areas, and dispersing the distribution of benefit to the local community. Biodiversity is to be enhanced as also natural asset maintenance and improvement is to be ensured; alongside the conservation areas are protected.
Factoring in participation and partnerships—interdepartmental, public-private, non-governmental organizations/community based organizations, panchayati raj institutions to help generate income through sustainable tourism.
Environmentally benign tourism to be fostered – through recognized standards for rural accommodation provision, minimizing of waste, reduction of pollution and minimizing environmental depleting fuel consumption.
Livelihood opportunities for rural households from home-stays/homesteads and provision of employment opportunities and livelihood enhancement from service provision, whether as entrepreneurs, guides, porters, cooks, etc.
Want to help the environment
while you are on holidays? The Ecotourism Ujung Kulon certification program
allows responsible travel consumers to be able to easily identify operators who
are committed to ensuring their products are environmentally sustainable,
economically viable and socially and culturally responsible.
The Eco Certification logo means
that you are guaranteed to experience a genuine and authentic tour, attraction
or accommodation that looks after the environment. The Eco Certification
program has been developed in Ujung Kulon by Ecotourism Ujung Kulon and is now
being exported to the rest of the world as the International Ecotourism
Standard. Ecotourism Ujung Kulon is the
peak national body for Ujung Kulon’s ecotourism industry. Formed in 1991 and an
incorporated, non-profit organization it has developed and manages the
Ecotourism and EcoGuide certification programs.
Ecotourism Ujung Kulon defines
Nature and Ecotourism as: ‘Ecologically sustainable tourism with a primary
focus on experiencing natural areas that fosters environmental and cultural
understanding, appreciation and conservation’.
Those operators whose tour,
attraction or accommodation meet and comply with the core criteria of the
Ecotourism Ujung Kulon Eco program and receive certification can genuinely
claim to provide an authentic ecotourism or nature tourism experience. The
certification process is supported by an assessment process, three yearly
review and audits of operators to ensure the rigorous credibility of the
program is maintained. Environmental benefits flow from improved practices that
lead to fewer negative environmental and cultural impacts.
You can identify eco certified
operators and their level of certification by the eco certification tick logos,
