“Echidna Walkabout’s driving principle is positive conservation,” says Janine Duffy, head of Echidna Walkabout’s Conservation Program
“We believe people protect what they know, and what they love.
“So we set out to create a style of tourism that not only minimizes negative effects on the environment, but positively creates a sense of wonder, an understanding, a power to change for the better.” says Janine.
Which is why every every Echidna Walkabout tour has a conservation action.
