Panama City, Panama, November 29, 2012 – Tour operator EcoCircuitos recently held its ground as a responsible and committed company by signing the policies for activities involving animals by the nonprofit organization “Foundation for the adoption, sponsorship and defense of animals”, FAADA.
The policies for the protection of all animals as one of the Foundation´s campaigns are supposed to raise awareness and sensitize society on the protection and defense of nonhuman animals, under different perspectives, coupled with the defense of nature and, ultimately, of life.
EcoCircuitos strongly encourages FAADA´s actions and therefore committed itself to meet the given guidelines, especially concerning whale watching, as well as birdwatching tours and any other activities involving animals.
“It is extremely important for us to respect and maintain the animals’ natural environment and to not disturb them in their routines”, says Annie Young, director and founder of EcoCircuitos. “In none of our tours we will harm animals, get too close to them, nor will we disturb them with noises or speed, or in any other way. Only this way we can sensitize our clients and make sure that the services we offer are sustainable and don´t have any impact on nature”, she adds.
EcoCircuitos stands up to its position as a sustainable tour operator by taking action and implying what is necessary to protect our animals.
