BeBiodiversity I travel

A Belgian federal campaign to make citizens and businesses aware of biodiversity-related issues.

I travel

I preferably buy souvenirs whose impact on biodiversity is minimal. I do not take home any seeds, flowers, plants, fruits or vegetables.

I limit the spread of diseases, parasites and invasive species. In this way, I contribute to preserving the islands’ unique and fragile biodiversity.

I avoid buying souvenirs made from endangered animal and plant species (ivory, reptile leather, coral, etc.)

I limit the overexploitation and potential extinction of species such as elephants and sea turtles.

I take care not to waste water: I take a shower rather than a bath, I change my sheets/washcloth only when necessary at the hotel, etc.

I limit my contribution to desertification in countries where water is a scarce and precious commodity and, by doing so, I limit habitat destruction.

I dispose of my waste at the appropriate sorting and collection points. I put out my cigarette properly and throw the cigarette butt in a garbage can.

I limit soil pollution and the contamination of water with debris that can take thousands of years to decompose and accumulate in ecosystems. I avoid causing a forest or bush fire. .

I eat locally and sensibly. I avoid eating food made from endangered or protected species.

I limit the transportation of food, mainly by boat, and the spread of invasive species such as invasive plants. I limit my contribution to the overexploitation and potential extinction of species such as pangolins and some shark species.

I favour a more responsible and sustainable mode of tourism than mass tourism, such as ecotourism.

Through ecotourism, I can not only minimise social and environmental impacts but also actively contribute to the conservation of natural heritage, mainly biodiversity.

I convince others to do the same.
