22nd August, 2016
What is ecotourism? Ecotourism is focused around exotic natural environments, with the intention of supporting conservation efforts, observing and preserving local wildlife. Essentially, it is directed as engaging tourists through a greener approach, offering an alternative to any trips that may harm the environment. Ecotourism aims to bring the people together to engage with the local surroundings in a positive way, giving a helping hand to our wonderful world. The Moroccan government recently signed a charter which is to encourage professionals to engage in environmentally friendly practices, becoming the leaders in this big change.   

Vision 2020
Helping to position Morocco within the top 20 tourist destinations in the world, the Vision 2020 is a programme that is providing investments within the tourist sector, aiming to improve the experience for both locals and visitors. Bringing in new jobs, more wealth from tourism, and aiming to do everything possible within the budgets to promote an eco-friendly future, by developing in a sustainable manner are all aspects of the Vision 2020 programme. After establishing a nationwide ecological network of 10 national parks, and 160 sites of biological interest, the ecotourism sector in Morocco plans to raise issues toward protecting these fantastic sites which have been nurtured and treasured over the years to benefit the wildlife, natural environment, and those who visit. By 2020, the plans for the future should be firmly in place to secure Moroccoís future as an ecotourism destination.
