The Bolivian River Dolphin: A Symbol of Responsible Tourism in Bolivia
As described in the National Action Plan, in the coming years the river dolphin could be used as a symbol to promote tourism in and to Bolivia. Dolphin tourism would just like in so many other countries make a major contribution to the local economy. However, it is of utmost importance to stimulate effective management of dolphin tourism, so as to limit the adverse effects on dolphins and to avoid problems between authorities and local communities.
To encourage responsible dolphin watching we have created an infographic to inform tour operators, tour guides and tourists.
