ecotourism


Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

Travel to an area of ecological, geographical, or natural history interest, for the primary purpose of study and education rather than pure recreation. Ecotourists seek to avoid bringing additional pressures upon the region that they visit, and are concerned to ensure that both local human cultures and their environment are enhanced rather than damaged by their activity.

Subjects: Ecology and Conservation — Earth Sciences and Geography.
