Aug 29, 2005, 01:00 ET from Conde Nast Traveler

    NEW YORK, Aug. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Conde Nast Traveler's annual search to
 identify ecotourism's creme de la creme combs every corner of the earth, from
 the steamy Amazon, to the parched Moroccan desert to frigid Antarctica,
 tracking down candidates that exemplify earth-friendly travel. To make the
 cut, resorts, lodges, and tour operators must demonstrate how they preserve
 natural surroundings, contribute to local cultures, and provide a rich guest
 experience. This year's 66 applications were rated by a panel of judges drawn
 from academia, government agencies, and green travel companies. This year's
 top scorer is the Jean-Michel Cousteau Fiji Islands Resort. The complete list
 (as seen below) is detailed in the issue.
