Today is World Turtle Day! And to celebrate we’ve launched a brand new turtle protection tool, designed to help hotels, tour operators, excursion providers and other tourism businesses become more “turtle friendly”.
Based on findings from a pilot scheme with four Karisma hotels in Mexico, the free online tool is packed with information and resources about beach management, excursion planning, staff training and customer communications.
The tool was developed in partnership with the Marine Conservation Society (MCS). Dr Peter Richardson, Biodiversity Programme Manager at MCS, said, “This valuable web resource should help make UK tourism far more friendly to threatened turtle populations around the world.”
