Canisius College will host a special symposium, entitled “Ecotourism: A Partnership with Nature?” on Sunday, January 18 from 4 p.m. – 6 p.m., and Monday, January 19, from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m., in the Regis Room of the college’s Richard E. Winter ’42 Student Center. The two-day event is free and open to the public, and sponsored by the Canisius College Institute for the Study of Human Animal Relations (ISHAR), Brock University’s Department of Tourism Management and the William H. Fitzpatrick Institute of Public Affairs and Leadership at Canisius.

“Ecotourism is a significant and growing aspect of the way that humans encounter animals in the natural world,” said Michael Noonan, PhD, director of the ISHAR program. “It is important that we work to get it right.”

The symposium will bring together visionary thinkers from across the country and the globe to discuss a host of ecotourism topics. Click here to learn more.
