Climate change is happening. The Earth’s average temperature is rising and this is impacting on the natural and built environment. While its effects may be gradual, they are real and having an impact on places of importance to Cairns and Tropical North Queensland, including the Great Barrier Reef and Wet Tropics Rainforests. As an ecotourism operator, providing adventure tours and activities in the Wet Tropics Rainforests, we are particularly committed to climate change action and education.
We have Climate Action Business certification through Ecotourism Australia. This acknowledges our commitment to climate change action and implementation of a set of adaption and emissions reduction actions.
We have created and implemented a Climate Change Action Plan. This includes sections on awareness and education. We inform our customers about the effects of climate change on our region, global warming and the effect it has on the Great Barrier Reef and the Rainforest. We encourage all our guests to do their own research on climate change and what they can do to reduce the impact they have.
There are ways in which every person on this planet can reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and help the environment. We’re pleased to provide some easy to implement tips on how you can help, move towards climate change action and offset your rafting tours.
