STI is a very detail focused organization with great expertise in sustainable tourism. It has very well established eco-tourism programs for both individuals and organizations.
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.
