Ecotourism And Adventure Careers & Jobs

ECOTOURISM AND ADVENTURE CAREERS AND JOBS

What is an Ecotourism Job Like?

If you like being with people and don’t want to be confined to an office all day; if you want to go into work knowing every day is going to be different then a career in tourism and hospitality could be for you. Combine this with a passion for conservation and a respect for the planet and its resources then ecotourism could be your ideal career.

Ecotourism is one of the fastest growing tourism industries worldwide. Most ecotourism experiences are aimed at helping people to foster an appreciation of the environment, the conservation of wildlife, plants and resources, and respect and understanding of native peoples.

The field is socially important because it provides a way for people to travel responsibly, and to learn about and respect the environment of these natural places. Ideally, Ecotourism professionals organize and execute an experience for travellers demonstrating local environmental sustainability and cultural sensitivity. Individuals with a background in ecotourism can also become educators in the field. There are educational positions in national and state parks, wilderness retreats as well as consultants in the ecotourism field.

The locations in which Ecotourism takes place can vary greatly from deserts, rainforests, mountains, rivers, beaches and oceans to rural landscapes.

As Ecotourism experiences are so varied it allows for a great diversity of careers within the industry.

Possible careers include:

  • Tour Guide
  • Tour Operator
  • Ecotourism Planner
  • Research Officer
  • Interpreters for OS Travellers
  • Extension Staff
  • Wildlife Tourism Ranger
  • Marine Educator
  • Marketing
  • Public Relations
