All they knew was that they had bought a property of sub-tropical rainforest with 400 metres of river and zoned wetlands on one side and a short stroll to the beach on the other.

Happy World Oceans Day! Today is a day dedicated to educating ourselves and others about the crucial roles that oceans play in sustaining and supporting our planet and humankind, recognising the current conditions of our oceans and the issues and risks surrounding them today, and encouraging positive change as individuals and communities to conserve and protect Earth’s life support system. Ecotourism is an industry that not only benefits from and depends on pristine natural environments and ecosystems, but can also act as a platform through which to educate visitors, encourage and support involvement in conservation initiatives and inspire positive, environmentally-friendly tourist behaviour.

The tourism industry is largely dependent on water. Accommodation providers, in particular, depend on large quantities of water to run showers, swimming pools, irrigation systems and so on. Consequently, a medium to large hotel in Australia, for example, uses around 79,000 litres per day, equating roughly to the same amount of water needed to fill 29 Olympic-sized pools each year.
