This episode is based on a great article that was written for Mongabay News. The article looks at a coastal town in the Philippines that has a booming ecotourism industry for whale shark viewing; however, the sightings have declined over the past few years and it is affecting the coastal town. Find out how by listening to the episode.

Travelling is always difficult. You have to find a place to stay that is worth the money you pay, you want good food, you want a nice beach, you want great culture, and you want to friendly people. After you have all of that, you want to make sure you are protecting the Ocean and the Environment in general. That's a problem...that's always a problem because there is very little information on how to travel for ecotourism.
Until now...Ecophiles is a website run by Namrata and Mitali, two long time friends and journalists who share a love of travel. They run the website to help fellow travellers travel free of worry about impacting the ocean and the environment.
Take a listen to the podcast to hear their story.
