HOME > OUR WORK > PRIORITIES > ECOTOURISM
Tourism worldwide is rapidly adopting a vast new array of sustainable tourism practices to incorporate within the AYM ecotourism plan. Eco-travelers expect to leave a holiday destination knowing exactly where they made their contributions to humanity, to the environment and to the culture they visited.
Ecotourism is the medium that helps build and reinforce essential travel ethics that translate easily into high-value travel experiences for both visitors as well as locals. It has also by default become a very successful environmental management and community development tool.

Ecotourism in Sierra Leone and Moselleh beach are a recent development in a sector that has been given backing by the UN General Assembly. There were many notable points to the ecotourism resolution adopted by the UN GA on 20 December 2010 [on the report of the Second Committee (A/65/440) – PDF of resolution]. One was:
…to promote ecotourism as an instrument that can contribute to achieving those Goals, in particular, the Goals of eradicating extreme poverty and of ensuring environmental sustainability, and support the efforts and policies of developing countries in this field;
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain
