Award-Winning Eco-Tourism

Last year was designated as the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development by the United Nations. One of the successful ecotourism businesses that attracted attention over the year was Misool Eco Resort in Raja Ampat, Indonesia. Misool won the “Environment Award” in the international Tourism for Tomorrow Awards 2017, arranged by The World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC). The goal of Misool is to preserve important marine environments for future generations, and the business reflects the growing conservation ambitions found around the world. Misool’s protected reef has been described as one of the few marine environments where the number of species and organisms are increasing instead of decreasing. This is particularly appreciated.
