How do you pursue a Career in Eco-Tourism?

Career in Eco-Tourism


I think Eco-Tourism is a great Career option. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to find information about What Eco-Tourism actually is. Most pages on the internet just talk about How to get into Eco-Tourism. While I was searching for reliable information about a Career in Eco-Tourism, I came across this amazing page:

J.P. Maithani's point of view!

J.P. Maithani is an experienced professional with 19 years & 2 months in Eco-Tourism. J.P. Maithani has worked in Eco-Tourism as Chairperson in AAGAAS Federation. In J.P. Maithani's own words, this is how J.P. Maithani got into Eco-Tourism: "After completing my masters in Mass Communication from Garhwal University, I wanted to start my own enterprise and started an Eco-Tourism based activity in Pipalkoti in 1999 as I was always interested in mountaineering and trekking from childhood. I got my basic training in mountaineering and trekking from National Adventure Foundation, Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports."

Career Video on Eco-Tourism

In a video, J.P. Maithani has talked about various aspects of a Career in Eco-Tourism. J.P. Maithani started by explaining Eco-Tourism as: "Eco-Toursim is tourism directed towards exotic natural environments, intended to support conservation efforts and observe wildlife. It is about uniting conservation, communities, and sustainable travel. This means that those who implement, participate in and market ecotourism activities should adopt the following ecotourism principles: Minimize physical, social, behavioral, and psychological impacts." I watched the full video and I absolutely loved it.

I found the video unique because it talked about Education in terms of things which can be learnt from books, to excel at a Career in Eco-Tourism and not as a list of Qualifications, which one needs to get into Eco-Tourism. J.P. Maithani touches upon these in the Education section of the Video:
  • Marketing
  • Local Context
  • History
  • Bio-Diversity
  • Geography
This Career demands specific Skills which only an experienced professional can lay out.
J.P. Maithani then explains why these Skills are essential for a Career in Eco-Tourism:
  • Training
  • Trekking
  • Resource Management and Mapping
  • Physical Fitness
  • Interpersonal
Positives of this Career are quite interesting.
J.P. Maithani believes that the following are some of the Positives of a Career in Eco-Tourism:
  • Networking
  • Local Resource Based Economy
  • Reverse Migration
  • Awareness
  • Ecological Impact
It is important that one develops a fair understanding of the Challenges of this Career.
And, J.P. Maithani believes that one needs to prepare for following Challenges of a Career in Eco-Tourism:
  • Institutional Support
  • Adoption Rates
  • Social Mindset
  • Uncertainties

In the final section of the video J.P. Maithani talks about How a day goes in a Career in Eco-Tourism. This video is by far the best video on a Career in Eco-Tourism, that I have ever come across. To see the full Talk, one needs to install the LifePage Career Talks App. Here is a direct deep link of the Video:
