Conservation International and National Geographic Traveler announce World Legacy Awards

magazine. By placing a value on a locales natural, historic, and cultural attributes, we provide an incentive to protect them. This partnership ensures that future generations may enjoy the same attributes present today.

Winners will be chosen in three categories:

Nature Travel

This award honors a business, organization, or attraction making a positive contribution to the conservation of natural areas and biodiversity. Eligible nominees include eco-lodges, ecotourism operators, and community or privately owned nature reserves whose existence through tourism revenue helps ensure protection for wilderness areas, marine environments, and rare and endangered species.

Heritage Tourism

This category recognizes a business, organization, or attraction making a positive contribution to cultural heritage and diversity. Community-based tourism projects, preservation of archeological sites, and activities that revive and enrich cultural traditions are eligible for the award.

Destination Stewardship

This award recognizes a business, organization, local community or even regional government protecting the natural and cultural heritage of a destination. Eligible nominees include marine environments, wilderness areas, a unique province, or a region of a country rich in nature and cultural traditions committed to the highest standards in embracing the principles of responsible tourism.

Nominees will be evaluated based on the contribution a project or overall destination makes to nature conservation and cultural heritage; generation of local economic benefit; promotion of these principles through education and awareness; and success in providing enriching, authentic travel experiences. They will be expected to show that their organization or destination achieves a significant and measurable positive impact on the surrounding ecosystem, the local culture, and the region as a whole.
