Gîtes Panda: WWF France helped to create the Gîtes Panda label to promote the use of ecological accommodation in important natural areas, such as the Mercantour National Park in the Maritime Alps. Cottages, guesthouses, or holiday residences that qualify for the label are located near hiking trails in Regional Natural Parks or National Parks and must meet specific eco-criteria. Check out the Gîtes Panda website to learn more about the label and to find out how you can support green tourism in the French Alps.
Fattorie del Panda: WWF Italy’s 'Fattorie del Panda' is the equivalent of Gîtes Panda, but in Italy. A ‘Fattoria del Panda’ is a small farm located in or near a Regional/National Park. These eco-farm stays give visitors a chance to learn about the surrounding natural environment, as well as the history, culture, and traditions of the region. Visit the Fattorie del Panda website to learn more about how you can participate in green tourism in Italy.
The URSINA bear trail: An important product that came out of WWF's Ursina Project was the creation of the bear trail in the Rhaetic Triangle area. The trail was created to inform local communities and visitors about the ecological requirements of brown bears and on how to act around and live with returning bears in the region. Visit the Ursina homepage to learn more.
