In March 2009, Ecological Foundation Director Jake Kheel participated as a speaker at the Green Travel Summit in Newport Beach, California. The Green Travel Summit is the first fully dedicated forum focused on exploring green travel strategies and their impact on business travel and corporate meetings.
Keynote speaker Auden Schendler was a conference highlight. If you haven't picked up his book "Getting Green Done" yet, its a great and insightful read. "We need fewer visionaries and more grunts." And maybe less conferences.....

The PUNTACANA Ecological Foundation is a not-for-profit foundation in the Dominican Republic. Our mission is to protect and restore the natural resources of the Punta Cana region and contribute to the sustainable development of the Dominican Republic.
We do this in a variety of ways, most specifically in the implementation of pilot and experimental projects that can be replicated by businesses, individuals, and government.
