Responsible tourism: Dominica trekking vacation
We are committed to preserving and respecting the environment – our Discover the unknown Dominica adventure series that focuses on the Waitukubuli National Trail is principally designed to showcase Dominica’s wild and preserved nature!
Our local guides rely on the undisturbed natural environment for the sustainability of their employment, and do all in their power to ensure that the environment is not tampered with. Our organization expects that during our excursions all who are within our care and responsibility will not damage or impede upon the local and regional habitat. We will provide and teach all visitors to comply with those actions that can and cannot be performed while in our care. This action will seek to highlight the list dos and don’ts and will ensure for the long-term protection of marine and terrestrial life forms located within our area.
We also strive to minimize our environmental footprint and commit to decreasing all solid waste including garbage, paper products, amenity bottles, and food service items while on the trail. We intend to accomplish this by reducing total materials, and purchasing greater levels of recyclable and biodegradable products.
We believe that the land we utilize is not ours to destroy; rather it is our responsibility to protect and value. Our habitat and the ecosystems within foster the ultimate viability of our operation.
We have operated experiential based excursions for more than 5 years now, and wherever possible we will seek to use local knowledge and skills in delivering our services. Additionally, we have been committed to paying wages and remunerating our service providers are rates that are way beyond the minimum amounts as stipulated under The Labour Standards (Minimum Wage), 2008, SRO 10 of 2008. We have found that as much as 40 % of revenues from these excursions have remained within the communities.
We have also recently incorporated the Friends of Waitukubuli Inc. - our quest to preserve and sustain our island. This is our awareness and reaction to issues related to (global) economics and climate change – our focus being on the sustainable development of things-Dominican – natural and cultural heritage, people, and the local economy. (We welcome support and collaboration to making this vision happen, and are quite keen on exchanging further on this philanthropic/volunteer based initiative to support and sustain the operations of the Waitukubuli National Trail).
