Eco Tours and Eco Tourism on Maui,
our presence in some of these fragile Maui environments contributes to their demise.
When touring these areas, please make a special effort to leave the area better than you
found it. When we hike, for example, we take a bag and pick up garbage. Maybe
someday we won't have to.
Showing respect for the habitat and native culture wherever you go is just the
beginning of being an eco-traveler. Since very few places are unaffected by humans,
almost everywhere you go, some action will be required on your part to reverse the effect
your presence (and the presence of other humans) has.
For the agriculturally minded, an exciting eco-tour would be one of the many
organic farms in Hawaii. For more info, check out Organic Hawaii!
