In December 2010 the Government of Pitcairn Islands established its Tourism Department. Previously Pitcairn's tourism initiatives were managed by a voluntary group known as the Pitcairn Island Tourism Board. Informed by the World Tourism Organization's principles of Sustainable Island Heritage Tourism, the Tourism Board, in existence for some 5 years, laid the cornerstones for the continued growth of the industry and the new department.
The principles of sustainable island heritage tourism refer to the environmental, economic and social-cultural aspects of tourism development, no matter where in the world it occurs. Establishing a balance between these 3 aspects is necessary to ensuring that Pitcairn's Tourism industry is built for long term sustainability. The Government of Pitcairn Islands is committed to making optimal use of the islands' environmental resources whilst conserving its natural heritage, unique biodiversity and the socio-cultural authenticity of the Legendary Pitcairn Island community.
