The goal of ecotourism is to help tourists gain awareness and appreciation for a particular area or region. They do this not just by looking at nature, but by actually experiencing it. Participants in ecotourism programs may hike through a forest or swim in a coral reef among brightly colored fish. No matter what they do, they leave the natural environment as they found it. This book will help readers understand ecotourism: what it is, what it does, and whether or not it actually works as it was intended.
