And booking Antarctica vacation packages via cruise ship offers a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see frozen landscapes that can't be seen anywhere else along with a plethora of polar wildlife. With vacation packages typically ranging from one to three weeks, cruise ships departing from Argentina's Tierra del Fuego make the two-day crossing through the…

  • Regrettably, we must add our voice to calls for a tourism boycott of Uganda, a country with much ecotourism potential but which has let virulent bigotry - much of it from anti-gay hate groups in the U.S. - lead its parliament and president to enact a draconian and barbaric law imposing prison and in some cases even the death penalty for homosexual practices. This has no place in a civilized world, and visitors have many other options when it comes to exploring African wildlife and local cultures So until this madness is stopped, please refrain from supporting it with your tourism business.

  • There's a lot packed into Singapore's 283 square miles, but visitors don't often think of ecotourism as a draw here. That's why I was interested to see a little island Pulau Ubin included in a recent CNN Travel look at a dozen and a half under-the-radar gems in Asia - find out why:

  • A couple of months ago, The Guardian ran a thought-provoking piece called "Can the Tourism Industry Survive the Climate Crisis?" It began: "One of the terrible ironies of the climate crisis is that some of the most beautiful – and popular – places in the world are also the most vulnerable. Which means as temperatures rise, extreme weather events increase, water sources dry up and natural habitats die, these places are facing another devastating loss: tourists." And proceeded to cite several case studies - mostly ecotourism stalwarts - that paint a fairly grim picture. A sobering read:
