Survey: Wildlife Watching Tourism in Africa

In support of the global efforts against wildlife poaching on the African continent, UNWTO is conducting a survey to evaluate the value of wildlife watching tourism in Africa.

The World Tourism Organization is mobilizing the international tourism community to gather further insight into the importance of wildlife for the sector. The results of the survey will be presented at the forthcoming UNWTO Regional Commission for Africa in April 2014 (Angola) and will be integrated into an extensive study on the economic value of wildlife watching tourism in Africa.

Atta has been asked to invite members to give your insight that would be very valuable for the research:

By sharing your inputs, the Atta members will be supporting the efforts on the fight against poaching and the conservation of one of the most precious attractions of Africa’s tourism – its wild animals and its beautiful nature.
