Sustainability has always come naturally to the Aspinall family, as Tiskita is an ecolodge that protects over 800 acres of rainforest in a private biological reserve. Moreover, Tiskita has an organic orchard, and supports local conservation and community development projects.
Tiskita & Sustainability
As an ecolodge, Tiskita practises small-scale tourism and has a policy to minimize its impact on the environment, for example, by using solar-heated water.
- Uses biodegradable detergents
- Protects tropical rainforest
- Carries out reforestation
- Supports local conservation programs and projects
- Employs local people
- Helps community development
Most of the conservation work and community development are carried out by the Tiskita Foundation, Tiskita’s non-profit organization.
