IMPORTANCE OF ECOTOURISM:

IMPORTANCE OF ECOTOURISM

Slide2:

Tourism allows us to do more than just learn facts about various locations. It allows us to immerse ourselves into the cultures and lifestyles of others and leaves lasting impressions that aren’t likely to be forgotten.

Ecotourism is valuable for people and the Planet :

Ecotourism is valuable for people and the Planet The rewards that come with the newness and the satisfying learning experiences of travel are irreplaceable, and these benefits can be enhanced through ecotourism. As an eco-tourist, you travel with more than personal satisfaction in mind. You help the planet and you enable people to lead a more fulfilling life.

Sustainable tourism is a learning experience for everyone involved :

Sustainable tourism is a learning experience for everyone involved The more that we know about a place, our love and admiration grows and inspires us to protect it. Tour guides and hosts are educated on a deeper level in order to share knowledge with visitors while tourists come to appreciate the beauty of new surroundings. Adding to the visual appeal is the new perspective that comes with learning the historical and environmental significance of unfamiliar lands and buildings.

As we explore unknown places with a spirit of curiosity and kindness, we begin important discussions with locals and other visitors. Through their stories, we have an inside view of what the needs and desires of the people are. Unfortunately, tourists are viewed by some as rude visitors who create inconveniences for residents. Locals are often annoyed by the increased traffic, unreasonable demands and the inability of tourists to understand and respect the cultural expectations and dress codes. :

Locals are often annoyed by the increased traffic, unreasonable demands and the inability of tourists to understand and respect the cultural expectations and dress codes.

Slide6:

When you meet people as you travel sustainably, mutual understanding allows all parties involved to learn about one another. You are able to tell others where you are from and to show them that you would like to tour the area without disturbing their way of life or disrespecting their values. By showing strangers that you care about their feelings and concerns, they view you as a representative of your home and as an ally. This creates a sense of unity and cultural sensitivity.

Ecotourism Promotes Economic Stability :

Ecotourism Promotes Economic Stability Many of these indigenous cultures have been deluded, or destroyed altogether, to set up for tourism, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Traveling to local attractions offers exciting experiences and the funding you provide to these places is shared amongst the community, contributing to more jobs and a boost in the local economy.

We Become More Sensitive Through Ecotourism :

We Become More Sensitive Through Ecotourism On the other hand, lesser known attractions may not be able to advertise or host a large number of guests at once, but deserve the publicity and funding to help them move forward. When we visit these places and tell others about the experience, we are helping to  promote eco-friendly businesses  and keep them in operation.

Ecotourism Reduces our Carbon Footprint:

Ecotourism Reduces our Carbon Footprint When you travel, commuting is a major part of the experience. Some choose to rent cars and drive while others take planes or trains. Commuting is unavoidable when traveling, but there are adventurous ways to cut back on transport that  adds to pollution in the air . While on a trip, explore guided areas that offer tours on foot. Have fun discovering the unique types of shared transportation that each city provides, such as trolleys and hybrid buses that offer comfortable means of travel for tourists and locals .

Animals Suffer When We Don’t Travel Sustainably :

Animals Suffer When We Don’t Travel Sustainably Small companies are working to save species from extinctions and monetary support helps them in this mission.  At many major attractions, animals are unfairly caged or forced to participate in performances that cause them stress and discomfort. Instead of paying to view animals in captivity, go sightseeing to see them at play in their natural habitats. There are also hiking trails waiting to be explored that offer colorful views of nature and close encounters with diverse species.

Planning to Travel Sustainably is Easier Than Ever Before :

Planning to Travel Sustainably is Easier Than Ever Before Tourism is amongst, if not  the , most popular industry in the world. The less sustainably we travel, the more we allow for destructive habits that negatively impact the environment. For example, there are large amounts of litter and waste often left behind when a large number of people congregate at events that do not encourage the use of recycling bins,  contributing greatly to pollution .

Slide13:

Because of its ability to attract and connect people, travel can be especially powerful as a way to preserve the environment instead. Proper planning and research allow tourists to find  eco-friendly alternatives  that are enjoyable for both solo travelers and families. There are lots of online tools and travel companies that can help you to book incredible experiences that are kind to the environment. With so many advancements in technology, you can easily plan your own trips to various destinations in a short amount of time if a travel consultant isn’t a desirable option.
