Pamela Wight

Ecotourism Consultant


Pamela Wight studied geography at the University of Alberta, Canada and environmental management in Aberdeen, Scotland before embarking on her career as a consultant in the relatively new field of ecotourism. Since 1974, she has assisted city, provincial and national governments develop their tourism resources in such a way as to preserve the culture and natural resources that attract travelers. In her job, she helps communities improve their destination appeal, and develops strategies for improved international competitiveness for the overall provincial tourism product.

Her assignments vary from large-scale planning projects in tourist centers like Banff, Canada, to smaller projects in remote areas of the Caribbean. She is an internationally recognized author and workshop leader in the realms of sustainable tourism, ecotourism, "greening" of tourism facilities, and resource conservation issues, and strategies and tools to deal with resource impact and visitor management issues.
