安达卢西亚是西班牙和欧洲的一个历史地区。它是西班牙的农业区，现在已发展成为著名的旅游景点。然而，到目前为止，安达卢西亚的当地社区相当传统，甚至有些地区作为“独特的生态系统”受到严密保护。这些生态系统受到保护，不受经济和环境剥削。因此，安达卢西亚是高度受保护的土地，其至少20%的面积受安达卢西亚自然保护区网络(Red de Espacios Naturales Protegidos de Andalucia, RENPA)的保护。
Andalucia is a Spanish and European historical area. It is an agricultural place of Spain, which is now developed as a famous tourist spot. However, till now the local community of the Andalucia is quite traditional and even some areas are closely protected as the ‘unique ecosystems’. These ecosystems have been protected from economic as well as environmental exploitation. Hence Andalucia is the highly protected land with at least 20% of its area protected under (Red de Espacios Naturales Protegidos de Andalucía, RENPA), The Network of Protected Natural Spaces of Andalusia.
Keeping this in mind, the tour operators offering holiday packages to Andalusia are highly conscious about eco-tourism. Here are three major tour players who offer eco-travel to Andalusia.
Steppes Discovery, established in 1989, is one of the first travel companies that initiated eco-tourism. The company provides wildlife and natural resources conservation holidays. Steppes has also raised a whopping amount of more than 750, 000 pounds for conservation charities. The travel company offers eco-travels and wherever possible, they ensure protection of natural resources, wildlife and the well-being of the local people. Every time a tour is booked with Steppes, the company pays 5 pounds to the UK charity and 10 pounds to the international charity. They also urge their customers to do the same, if they wish to. The company believes that this amount would be utilized for the betterment of the deprived people and for the development of the lost lands, which in turn would create new destinations to travel (Steppestravel.co.uk, 2016).
