Book Description

15 Nov 2007 0415429315 978-0415429313 3

Focusing on an array of economic, social and ecological inconsistencies that continue to plague ecotourism in theory and practice, this book examines ecotourism in reference to other related forms of tourism, impacts, conservation, sustainability, education and interpretation, policy and governance, and the ethical imperative of ecotourism as these apply to the world’s greenest form of tourism.

This revised edition includes:

  • new information on the magnitude of the tourism industry, nature-based tourism and the pros and cons of mass ecotourism
  • revised chapters on development, economics, marketing, policy, ecotourism in practice and biodiversity conservation
  • a section on governance models, ecotourism programmes, operators and guides, interpretation, certification, and ecolodge design
  • a discussion of ecotourism as an ethical or responsible form of tourism
  • approximately 300 new references.

It includes case studies and considers the perspectives of many adjacent fields, including geography, economics, business, philosophy, biology, and environmental studies.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Start to Ecotourism 7 Feb 2000
By Lindsey Fry - Published on
This was a very good introductory book to ecotourism. It was not too scientific as well as not being too elementary. It provided good information about the multiple effects of ecotourism in order to make the reader more aware of tourism's effects. I will be able to apply the information I obtained and use it for my trip to Central America in order to be a respectable and responsible traveler.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ecotourism by David fennell 12 Oct 2011
By Jk - Published on
This book is pretty alright, but there's so many references that it's hard to read just the text.
It's one of those books that unfortunately you feel like you have to skip and try to search through words to learn something
