Borders Are Open! Ecotourism in the New Normal

The closure of Malaysia's international borders hit the local tourism industry hard, and almost decimated the ecotourism sector. Now that borders have reopened, we speak to two nature guides and ecotourism operators, Andrew Sebastian, the Founder & Chief Executive Officer of the  Ecotourism & Conservation Society Malaysia and Gwenda Gui, the Vice President of the Sabah Tourist Guides Association, about how the industry is preparing for the return of more international travellers, the necessary assistance from both state and federal authorities that would be helpful to ecotourism players to rebuild, and what ecotourism in the new normal might look like, for both local and international travellers.
