The partnership comes to create new guidelines and policies that will help to limit the impact of Dusit’s operations on natural habitats by promoting responsible wildlife tourism in each of its destinations. By offering eco-friendly, community-based activities like trips to elephant conservation centres and mindful trekking amongst nature, Dusit hopes to delight its guests with authentic, localised experiences while empowering its employees and customers to be wildlife-friendly travellers and advocates. The partnership was officially signed at Baan Dusit Thani, Soi Saladaeng, recently.
