Education - sustainable wildilfe tourism

The Arctic Fox Center offers educational program, in collaboration with The West fjord Educational Center, for tourist agencies and guides to increase their knowledge about the species as a resource in sustainable wildlife tourism.

The course is three lesson hours where the first is an introduction of the status of the species, biology, distribution, adaption to arctic live, food habits, colour morphs, social system etc.. Lesion two covers locations and clues of the arctic foxes´ whereabouts, where to find them and when, what types of foxes we should focus on and who should be left undisturbed. The third lesion addresses current law and regulations about conservation and especially protected areas.

This course is one of our contribution to the European project The Wild North, of which The Arctic Fox Center is an active partner.
