Polar Bear Ecotourism

Seeing is believing. And once people see it, they want to save it.

Conscientious, respectful ecotourism can help local communities earn vital income and encourage residents and visitors alike to recognize the long-term advantages of conserving polar bears and their habitat.

After all, it's a habitat we share.

Well-managed tourism enlightens and inspires visitors to see the necessity of safeguarding the future of polar bears and their Arctic wilderness—it connects people to nature.

With charismatic animals like the polar bear, having the opportunity to literally look one in the eye can transform perspectives and encourage people to become more engaged in conservation.

Adaptive management will help ensure that recreational activities don't have a negative impact on polar bears and other Arctic wildlife.
