Tourism as a Catalyst for Coastal Community Regeneration

Wednesday June 26, 2024 at 10:00 - 11:00 AM EDT

Explore how tourism can drive sustainable development and ecological restoration in coastal regions and learn from tourism experts’ successful integration of rewilding marine ecosystems. We will discuss the importance of guest engagement and citizen science in generating awareness for conservation.

Camilla, the Marine Programme Manager and Principal Scientist at Oceans Without Borders, developed a deep connection with the ocean during her childhood in Mozambique’s Bazaruto Archipelago.

This dual exposure ignited her passion for marine biology and commitment to coral reef restoration.
