Natural heritage assets refer to the places and species that belong to the great biologically diverse natural wealth contained in our planetary eco-system. As well as having their own intrinsic value, they are of immense importance for tourism, which can both support and threaten their continuation and development. A sustainable approach to tourism must accept the responsibility to conserve and enhance all forms of tangible and in-tangible natural heritage as a legacy for future generations. This requires a firm commitment to effective management and  creative, responsible interpretation of heritage, supported by all tourism stakeholders.
