Echidna Walkabout Nature Tours, Australia
Role in programme(s):
Glasgow Declaration on Climate Action in Tourism
Since 1993 Echidna Walkabout has advocated for action on climate change. Australia is especially vulnerable to climate change : we've seen first hand the terrible impact planetary heating has had on our unique wildlife. The devastating loss of wildlife and biodiversity in our country culminated in the biggest wildfires Australia (and the world) has seen. Over 3 billion animals died in those fires and vast areas of Australia were turned to ash. We believe that the best remedy to inaction on climate change is by example, action and unity.
