Mountains provide essential fresh water to billions of people worldwide, are home to wildlife, flora and fauna and offer a place for mountain lovers to be inspired, to play and to adventure. The organisation empowers mountain tourists and the mountain industry to adopt the Respect the Mountains 7 Ways. By following these simple yet effective actions, all sectors of the mountain tourism industry are encouraged to reduce their impact, whilst building a sustainable future.

The grant from the EOCA kick started WLT’s support of a new and vital Elephant Corridor project from Jim Corbett National Park in Uttarakhand, northern India, where local communities, currently encountering conflict with Elephants and Tigers are very keen to be relocated. As well as providing vital funding for this project the EOCA grant leveraged match-funding from another WLT donor which is testament to the importance of the EOCA’s support.
