Coastal Awareness and Responsible Ecotourism Certification

The CARE certification program is a four-week blended learning opportunity designed for individuals working in coastal, water-based tourism including but not limited to paddle outfitters and charter boat companies.

The program, launched in 2021 by Marine Extension and Georgia Sea Grant and Manomet, Inc., provides ecotour companies with the tools to implement best practices when it comes to water-based tourism. Engaging ecotourism companies through a certification course will build support for conservation and stewardship of important habitats and wildlife on the coast.

The Coastal Awareness and Responsible Ecotourism certification program was developed through a Coastal Incentive Grant from the Georgia Department of Natural Resources Coastal Resources Division.

Ecotourism guides have the opportunity to connect with coastal experts from different locations and professions along the Georgia bight.
