Environmental risks and impacts from arctic cruise tourism

Post by MGeitz »

WWF has recently published a report on the environmental risks cruise tourism poses to the arctic environment. The report addresses specifically the situation on the high-arctic archipelago of Svalbard (half way between Northern Norway and the Northpole), but findings are of interest to cruise activities in other parts of the world as well.

The $25 billion-a-year cruising industry has faced more lawsuits than it cares to count over the past few decades -- some 2,100 in South Florida alone since 2001.

Cruise Tourism and Its Impact on Ecology and Environment

The state of the cruise industry was recently examined and discussed by all the major players at the 2009 Annual Cruise Shipping Convention in Miami. The hot topic at the convention was, of course, the economy and how it has effected the cruise travel industry, as a whole. While perspectives on 2008 and 2009 are bleak, executives remain positive and upbeat.
