WHAT WE DO

Our mission at NatureScapes is to enhance the long-term sustainability of natural land-&-seascapes as well as the people, places and cultures connected to them --- through tourism. 

 

Working around the world with partners that include governments, businesses and NGO’s, we help people build tourism experiences and destinations that are profitable, give back to nature, support the needs of local communities and captivate visitors.  

 

We believe that real change only occurs if it's locally driven. We have therefore developed a suite of solutions that are designed to be led by local champions who are at the intersection of conservation, tourism and destination management to strengthen and manage tourism in their region. These are framed within our UPLIFT Program. Working with our local partners, we provide access to best practices, tools, market data and networks as well as planning, mentorship and guidance throughout the process.

UPLIFT Program

Lift Up Your Tourism Future

The UPLIFT Program has six building blocks that together are the foundation for comprehensive and successful tourism in land-&-seascapes. Each building block includes practical solutions that help address a specific tourism need. 

 

While many partners take advantage of individual tools, when used together the building blocks within the UPLIFT Program help to make systemic change in a place. All tools and solutions can be customized to a local need.
