Advantages of Ecotourism

Advantages of Ecotourism
Ecotourism refers to a wide range of travel opportunities that give people the opportunity to learn about the natural environment and other cultures without harming the environment.

Environmental Protection

When done correctly, ecotourism protects the existing natural environment from development, such as deforestation.

Increased Awareness

As people participate in ecotourism and learn about the value of protecting the environment, the awareness of environmental issues increases.

Local Viability

By engaging in ecotourism, localities have an economically viable option for revenue, replacing environmentally damaging activities like logging and cutting down the forests for ranching.

National Park Funding

The potential tax revenue generated by ecotourism can fund national preservation efforts, including national parks and wildlife areas.


True ecotourism involves activities that can be practiced continuously without destroying the environment so that future generations can enjoy the same trips.
