More Green Resources

I recently stumbled upon a few websites I found useful and I would like to share this with you:
  • More Ecotourism websites you have ever dreamt of: here is a list of 50 Green Ecotourism Travel Blog Sites.
  • As ecotourism is a lot about seasonality, here is a website that tells you where to go depending on the time of the year: Joobili . Even if the website does not seem to be especially green oriented, the answers provided are environmentally friendly.
  • Local, local, local: ecotourism is a lot about that, and a website like Local Dirt that lets you "find, buy and sell local" deserves to be considered as a green website!

I really like Twitter as it is a formidable communication tool that enables people to find valuable information quite quickly and to interact with people having the same interests. I found a few ressources to find green news with Twitter, hope it can be helpful:

Let me know if you have any other source.

Chernobyl: From Nuclear Accident to Ecotourism?

I found the info through different blogs but I could not believe it: sine 2004, the UN is encouraging tourism in the disaster area of Chernobyl. I heard that it was possible to visit the inhabited tows and the nuclear site, but what I find quite weird is the fact that the UN promotes it as ecotourism. Of course the disaster area has become a sort of wildlife sanctuary colonized by many species such as wolves, but I truly feel it does not sound like ecotourism.
