Tourism as a general trade may not actually have a deep impact for the Maldives conservation issue. But with so many resorts set up and more new ones being set up on the islands, the tourism industry does have a major impact on the environment here. Whether this industry is a positive or a negative is something that the Maldivian government itself has provided answers for.
The Maldives and its people want their country to survive climate change. Even now, the sparkling emerald waters that surround it are rising at an alarming rate every year. In no time, the Maldives Islands can vanish off the face of the planet and remain only in the memories of former inhabitants and visitors.
It might seem ghoulish for visitors to come and take pictures or videos of islands that are about to vanish from maps. The fascination should come with a conscience. That is one thing that all resorts management, the government and the people will try educating any visitor in. The few days this visitor in the Maldives vacation stay has is enriched by this.
Tourism Dollars Help in Maldives Conservation
A good part of your tourist dollar goes towards conservation efforts in the Maldives. Government implements these efforts in the general sense and in specific detail. Specifics mean policies for resorts planning and construction, which is readily followed, and in the strictest sense promotes a better, greener way to visit and live in the islands.
Maldives resorts lead in providing their visitors a green perspective. Plus, they are already experienced practitioners of environment friendly processes. This ranges from utilities to clean up systems, from organic food to the use of electricity. A lot of other luxury resorts around the world are slowly being convinced of these processes as best practise.
