A Customer said decent discussion of sustainable tourism and conservation. Discussion of the interaction between tourism and conservation needs. Informative, uses lots of information, good list of sources if looking to find a greater base to learn about this topic. Could have gone slightly more in depth into case studies, rather than broad trends or shallow discussions of certain areas. Moderately good proposals as to solutions for some of the problems tourism poses the environment.
Using examples of successful nature tourism programs in Kenya, Costa Rica, the United States, and elsewhere, the book examines the roles of government and the private sector, explores nature tourism's potential as a tool for developing countries, and outlines ways for local residents to get involved.. Provides practical advice and models for planning and developing a nature tourism industry, evaluating economic benefits, and marketing nature tourism
