MEDIA RELEASE: Overtourism and a low carbon future high on agenda for new Ecotourism Australia / University of Queensland PhD candidates
After an extensive and competitive process which saw The University of Queensland (UQ) receive 42 applications from around the world, three PhD candidates have now been awarded scholarships to begin research into some of the most pressing issues facing Australia’s ecotourism industry.
A unique opportunity exists to undertake research on best practice ecotourism management and help shape the future of this growing industry.
As an ecotourism operator, you have a strategic role to play in converting more tourists to make eco-friendly choices. Attracting visitors who are not particularly environmentally conscious and changing their behaviours is hard work. Moreover, it can be frustrating to see them not following the eco-friendly recommendations you’ve put in place.
