Not many places offer such unique variety. In fact, our National areas have been ranked eleventh in the world among Ecotourist destinations that "give the most enriching experience."
The ranking was produced from a survey by Weissmann Travel Reports
(WTR). WTR is an encyclopedia of travel used primarily by professionals (a consumer version is available on AOL). [We were ranked alongside the finest ecotourism destinations in Rwanda, Botswana, Ecuador, Wyoming, Antarctica, Australia, India, Manitoba, Costa Rica and Lapland.]
