Eco-Tourism Guide

Eco-tourism guides are the people responsible for taking the public on educational and environmental tours. 

They plan eco-tours and accompany people to places of interest, giving them insight into the surrounding environment. 

They can include:

  • survival courses,
  • environmental preservation courses,
  • training in water rescue and
  • customised tour packages. 

They research the information for the tours they conduct and educate their clients accordingly.  This includes teaching them to use ecologically-friendly and recyclable products. 

Working with both local and overseas visitors ecologists need to have a sound knowledge of geology, flora, fauna, weather and animal behaviour, in order to answer numerous questions presented by clients.
