This Toolbox is available for purchase.
Many communities of Indigenous people are looking to ecotourism as a means of managing their lands and providing jobs for their children. The research and planning stage of an ecotourism product is crucial. It requires expertise not always available in Indigenous communities.
The content of this Toolbox has been grouped into six topics. Each topic covers a number of units of competency from the Tourism Training Package. The topics are:
- Environmental impact
- Culture and cultural considerations
- Economic and social issues
- Health safety and security
- The tourism sector
- Developing an ecotourism plan and trialling the venture
The Toolbox can be used by Indigenous people or communities to develop an Indigenous ecotourism plan. As learners work through the contents of the Toolbox, they will be progressively developing an ecotourism plan, and acquiring the skills required to work in the tourism industry.
