((ecko)) is a project of the Science and Environment Council of Southwest Florida. We’re a non-profit collaboration of science-based environmental non-profit and governmental organizations. Proceeds from ((ecko)) support the environmental programs of the Council and it’s Members.
Together through the synergy of shared resources and expertise, we seek to demonstrate for our community and the world a unique model for collaborative ecotourism. With our area’s abundance of natural assets and the extensive and unparalleled local environmental knowledge and expertise of the Science and Environment Council and our green business partners, we are perfectly positioned as the organizing hub for sustainable ecotourism.
