Ecotourism Ecotourism Presentation Transcript

  • Ecotourism
  • What is ecotourism?
    • Ecotourism is “ responsible travel to natural areas which conserves the environment and sustains the livelihood of local people”.
    • National Geographic Online
    • “ travel that focuses on avoiding harm to wilderness areas and wildlife and wherever possible, actively contributes to their preservation.”
    • GMBIS
    • Are we talking about the people as well?
  • Sustainable Tourism
    • What is sustainable development?
      • This is the ability to develop without damaging the environment.
    • Sustainable tourism can be divided into two parts.
      • Community tourism - where you stay with local people (The Gambia) .
      • Ecotourism - where you focus on plants and animals in an ecosystem (Costa Rica).
  • What’s this got to do with him? Should we fly to get to ecotourist destinations?
  • Starter
  • Ecotourism should:
    • Minimize impact
    • Build environmental and cultural awareness and respect
    • Provide positive experiences for both visitors and hosts
    • Provide direct financial benefits for conservation
    • Provide financial benefits and empowerment for local people
    • Raise sensitivity to host countries' political, environmental, and social climate
    • Support international human rights and labor agreements
  • The Characteristics
    • The holiday focuses on the natural environment
    • It involves a level of education
    • It does not damage the environment
    • It keeps to small numbers
    • It is thus sustainable
  • Problems
    • Eco-tourism has a very fast growth
    • but:
    • There is confusion over the use of the terms
    • Many trips that are called this, in order to sell them, are not truly ‘eco-tourism’
  • Alta Floresta, Brazil Nice location! Kayaking – a typical ecotourist activity Ecofriendly, traditional accommodation Problems: soil erosion from cars
  • Conclusion
    • How many people is too many?
    • When does a holiday site become unsustainable?
    • What do we have to do to make an impact on other cultures?
    • If the world’s population grows at 100 million each year, what is the future of tourism?
  • Sustainable tourism statistics
