Tourism Cares is thrilled to partner with the World Travel & Tourism Council to hold a half-day volunteer event where the industry’s most influential leaders give back to their host city of Buenos Aires. Tourism Cares with Buenos Aires will mark the fourth volunteer service program Tourism Cares has organised in conjunction with the WTTC Summit to engage delegates in giving back to their host community, providing an excellent opportunity for them to leave a lasting impact and in turn show the industry’s commitment to preservation and conservation.
Volunteers will work within The Buenos Aires Eco-park, a former historic zoo in the process of being transformed to an interactive eco-park. The park will focus on improvement of animals standards of living and a more educational and fulfilling experience for visitors that raises awareness of environmental issues both in Argentina and internationally.
Volunteers will help in the transformation of the site, planting native plant species and aiding in the restoration of historic statues and structures throughout the park.
Gerald Lawless, WTTC Chairman
