Pulau Tioman as a Sustainable Tourism Destination

Pulau Tioman as a Sustainable Tourism Destination

For many islands, their social, economic and environmental well being is tied strongly to the fate of a single sector: tourism. But badly planned tourism risks depleting biodiversity, degrading land and polluting the seas. Using Tioman Island as a case study, Reef Check Malaysia, the local chapter of the world’s largest international coral reef monitoring programme, released a paper titled: Tioman as a Sustainable Tourism Destination. Joining us to shed more light on this paper is Julian Hyde, the General Manager of Reef Check Malaysia.
