Launch a multi-pronged campaign to establish two new long-term funding mechanisms for conservation in Jamaica: (i) a national fee system deriving income from visitors to the country; and (ii) a voluntary guest contribution program by hotels. The project supports feasibility studies, outreach through media and pilot projects, with close collaboration from leading tourism resorts.
