India is a universe unto itself. Within our borders exist almost every known habitat type on planet Earth, from frozen 'wastes' to blazing deserts, dripping rainforests to boggy swamps, corals and coasts to swaying grasslands.

Be a responsible traveller.

With tourism and especially nature tourism set to continue to be a major growth industry into the future, never has it been more important to ensure that your visits economic benefits are balanced with support and protection of our natural spaces and their local communities.  Poorly executed tourism and inappropriate visitor behaviour can threaten and destroy what we have all come to enjoy.  However, well planned, responsible travel and travellers have the power to safeguard our parks and sanctuaries, transform local livelihoods, turn poachers into protectors, barren farmland into revitalised wildlife habitat, and we hope inspire you to value nature for its extraordinary richness and essential natural services to humankind including clear water and clean air besides countless others.

So we ask you to 'Look before you book' for the PUG kitemark from your accommodation providers on your next visit to a park or wildlife sanctuary! Sanctuary Asia has teamed up with TOFTigers, a not-for-profit travel campaign that is striving to effect better nature tourism across the Indian subcontinent.  Read more about their unique kite-mark, the PUG Mark representing South Asia's best known environmental certification for accommodation providers.  Using their TOFTigers Good Wildlife Travel Guide you can select where to stay and who to travel with.

So now you can tread softly, respect wildlife and support local communities and be inspired – all while you are on your nature holiday.
