I had a great experience working as a volunteer intern with STI in the fall of 2009. I found their educational and outreach services to be one of a kind and was given the opportunity to work on a cutting edge conservation project examining the future of trading water rights as a potential tool for promoting ecotourism by helping travelers participate in environmental conservation and economic development projects in the places they visit.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change the way we think about ecotourism.
