Dominica: One of the World’s Best Ethical Destinations for 2014

For the third time, Dominica has been named one of “The World’s 10 Best Ethical Destinations” by Ethical Traveler.

Dominica was named to the 2014 list because of the island’s commitment to green energy as well as preserve and protect the environment. “In Dominica, native species and forests are relative unspoiled in comparison to neighboring islands,” according to a report by Ethical Traveler Executive Director Jeff Greenwald.

Furthermore, “impressive efforts are underway to save endemic mountain chickens, which only inhabit two islands in the world. Other notable strides in Dominica include the expansion of solar power across the island, work to preserve native populations of frogs and iguanas, and a stated goal to become energy independent and carbon negative by 2020.”

For 2014, Ethical Traveler’s Top 10 list includes:
