Eco-Tourism

While travel costs will rise in the future, natural recreational areas closeby urban dwellings will gain in importance. But also the demand for international nature-travel to some last intact ecosystems will rise. Let's discuss its development here!

--------------------
This book uses evidence based on case studies by practioners from across Southern Africa to examine a range of issues that define how responsible tourism works, and how it doesn't. In conclusion, key findings on the policy and business implications of the research are offered.

Wish to start by congratulating Anna, the main architect of this group. Eco-tourism is a very rich environmental field gradually growing in most parts of Africa especially West Africa. I currently work for a conservation organization and my project site which inhabits the Cross River gorilla [gorilla gorilla diehli] appears to be wonderful eco-touristic site which every nature-minded person would like to view. It possesses great caves, mountains, valleys, waterfalls and beautiful estuaries which are also a home to a wide range of biodiversity.
Lets share ideas and collectively built this group for eco-tourism remains a very indispensable aspect in our day to day findings.

Hey you both, thanks for joining the group. Hope to have a wee bit more time to actually discuss eco-tourism with you guys on here as soon as I've got this damn Ph.D. thing done ;).
Cheers!

dear all,
im now currently working in some conservation areas in west papua, indonesia. this area has some beautiful spots, including beaches, forests. whats in my mind, the eco-tourism could be one of the solution to protect those beautiful places. so, lets share and hopefully we could do something to protect beautiful places, even just a bit :)
best regards,
taufik

Hi Anna,

Let's conserve environment through sustainable tourism, not just enjoy the nature but also study it, use it, save it!

warmest regards from Indonesia :)

Hey everyone,

here's another discussion topic I'd like you to comment on and share your opinions. After an interview round and following discussion with DLF yesterday I am now more than before convinced that the word has to be spread that we can't just hop a plane to NewYork for 2 days or find our inner peace on some islands 4 times a year. Look at your surroundings, all the forests and green areas: Why don't you start to explore your countryside and national parks around the corner first before you aim for the most distant destinations.

While I am convinced that on this board there are enough people doing this already, I would like to encourage those people to go out and spread the word to market their surroundings.

Be the guide to your friends and acquaintances by saying: "My country is beautiful and I'll show you around."

Oh, and of course a link, that makes sense:
http://www.ecotourism.org/

Cheers!
Anna
