  2. 2. Eco - Tourism Going on a vacation with family does not necessarily mean that learning should take a backseat. Eco-tourism is what edu- cators call teachable moments or, more definitively, unplanned opportunities to ex- plain a concept that may have unintention- ally captured your child's interest.

  3. 3. Whether your taking a tour in the forests of India, observing the great Indian bus- tard which is facing extinction or under- standing water issues in the Himalayas, ecotourism is a vacation experience that provides a number of opportunities to teach our younger generations about the fragility of our ecosystem and the signifi- cance of heritage.

  4. 4. Who among us has not witnessed the common occurrence while visiting the local zoo, going hiking through the wilder- ness or even watching a local artistic ex- hibit of younger children looking with ab- solute wonder and amazement at the spec- tacle of music, art, flora or fauna? There is delight followed by an onslaught of illumi- nating questions about people and the natural world. These moments are fantastic for a child's personal growth and development and the value system that is at the core of ecotour- ism can have a positive influence on all age groups, not just the young.

  5. 5. Children can benefit from an ecotourism vacation and the experience offers an op- portunity for : Instruction about natural wildlife – Eco- tours are not only small group tours that allow up-close-and-personal views of nature, but ones that are generally led by a person who has been trained to under- stand birds, insects, animals and plants of the region and their relationship to the ecosystem, thereby bringing education alive.

  6. 6. Awareness about environmental degrada- tion – An extremely important component of ecotourism is to inform tourists about ways on how to minimize waste, soil ero- sion, air and water pollution so as to not disturb the environment - lessons that will always stay with children. Involvement in conservation efforts – Whether it's helping to record sea turtle activity in Orissa or understanding the de- structive role of invasive plant species in the wilderness, ecotourism allows for deep knowledge of the fragility of the natu- ral world.

  7. 7. Focus on the depletion of natural re- sources – Whether it's learning about how countries are implementing renewable energy to power engines or how an Eco- lodge harnesses solar or wind power for its operations - ecotourism teaches how the impact of tourism is affecting sustain- able land development, public transporta- tion choices and how other countries are using low-carbon technologies today.

  8. 8. Exposure to culture – From learning new languages or phrases or tasting new food, ecotourism interprets cultural traditions and experiences that provide a long lasting impression about the world. Inspiration for a life's passion – While ob- serving animals in their natural habitat, or snorkeling through a coral reef, ecotour- ism sparks the imagination to dream of a career in the field or even find solutions to environmental problems.

  9. 9. Ecotourism also offers opportunities to in- corporate a child's science, social studies, language, or even art and music lessons. Dedication to the cause of the environ- ment and its preservation can have a long-lasting impact on the way our younger generations feel more connected to ecosystems. Not only will children es- tablish a deeper, longer-lasting connection with the region they are visiting during an ecotour, they will learn more about how they can make a more positive impact on the world.
