Extreme Eco-tourism


Consumer demand is growing, travel industry suppliers are developing new green programs, and governments are creating new policies to encourage "sustainable" practices in tourism. But what does that really mean? How can it be measured and credibly demonstrated, in order to build consumer confidence, promote efficiency, and fight false claims?


While others might argue over this, Ostional Private WildLife Reserve is making painstaking effort to come to a common understanding of "regenerative design," is a process-oriented systems thinking approach. The basis is derived from natural systems in which the output is greater than the input. The system is intended to create vibrant ecologies and exuberant cultures that continue to generate a surplus of fertility and vitality. This perspective is provided by permaculture design and ecological building. 
This is the minimum that any eco-tourism business should aspire to reach.  But currently it requires additional planning that many businesses are not wiling to invest. 
The O system is organized around four main themes: effective regenerative planning; maximizing social and economic benefits for the local community; enhancing cultural heritage; and removing negative impacts to the environment.  Our criteria  is intended to meet and exceed the global sustainable tourism criteria established by a coalition of 27 organizations – the Partnership for Global Sustainable Tourism Criteria in response to the global challenges of the United Nation's Millennium Development Goals. The Sustainable Tourism Criteria have been developed in accordance with the ISEAL Code of Best Practice.
Our aim is to redevelop systems with greater-than absolute efficiency, that consistently create an overabundance to allow for the co-evolution of the human species amongst other thriving species.  And our tourists will be participating in this while playing paintball, mountain-biking, and other fun activities.
Have fun and save the world!
