The recently contested third and final Test between India and the West Indies in Windsor Park, Roseau was the first to played in the island of Dominica, known as the “Nature Island” of the Caribbean (named as the world’s second most “pure” island in Islands Magazine April/May 2010), due to the large number of rainforests, waterfalls and mountains on the island. Dominica is not your typical West Indian island of sun, sand and surf, but rather, Dominica is a lush, green paradise comparable to locations the North Island of New Zealand.
After the Ministry of Tourism for Dominica received funding of 6 million euros from the European Union for the Ecotourism Development Program (this service was subsequently implemented by Tourism Intelligence International), known as the ETDP, Dominica became world-renowned for a wonderful ecotourism program. So what exactly is ecotourism? Ecotourism (also known as ecological tourism) is a form of tourism that appeals to ecologically and socially conscious individuals.
Generally speaking, ecotourism focuses on volunteering, personal growth and learning new ways to live on the planet. It typically involves travel to destinations where flora, fauna and cultural heritage are the primary attractions, as is certainly the case in Dominica. cont./
