Ecotourism experts recommend best places for responsible travel

(Green Global Travel) Instead of creating a 2015 travel wish list, Green Global Travel has consulted a team of five experts on ecotourism to discover what they consider 2015’s top travel destinations. Their responses weren’t based on dreams, but on analytical data regarding the responsible, sustainable tourism opportunities each place has to offer. The panel consisted of five of the field’s most respected thought leaders:

• Jeff Greenwald- Founder of Ethical Traveler 

• Dr Martha Honey- Director of the Center for Responsible Travel

• Soraya Shattuck- Founder of Sustainable Tourism Solutions 

• Jonathan Tourtellot- Geotourism Editor of National Geographic Traveler and principal of The Destination Stewardship Center

• Megan Epler Wood- Founder of The International Ecotourism Society and Director of Harvard’s International Sustainable Tourism Initiative
