Responsible Travel in Canada
Canada is famous for its epic vistas, and mountains of wildlife (pardon the pun!). But like many countries, it has it’s share of environmental and cultural concerns too; from Arctic drilling to threats to indigenous communities and animals.
We want to make tourism a force for good, and always try to make a positive impact on our destinations. Oh, and we want to empower you to do the same! So before you lace up your boots, read more about responsible travel in Canada.
Protecting the Local Wildlife
From bears and beavers, to bobcats and bald eagles, Canada is a wildlife lover’s dream, with more species of mammals, marine-life and feathery friends than you can shake a pair of binoculars at (um, but maybe don’t shake your binoculars at them!). If you’re banking on embracing your ’inner Attenborough’ during your Canada holiday, here’s how you can do it responsibly.
Doing Your Bit for the Environment
Ah, there’s nothing quite like getting back to nature, is there? Canada is the place to go if you’re craving a dose of the Great Outdoors. Just imagine… crisp, clean air, fragrant pine forests, crystal-clear rivers. And not a crisp packet in sight! Want to keep it that way? We’ve got a few tips on how you can be an eco-warrior in Canada.
Protecting Local Cultures & Supporting Communities
It’s not all about moose and mountains in Canada, y’know! As well as holding the (slightly tongue-in-cheek) title of one of the friendliest nations on the planet, Canada is also home to a melting pot of native traditions and local communities. Find out how you can make a difference to Canada’s communities during your holiday.
