What is ecotourism? Ecotourism is responsible travel to fragile, pristine, and usually protected areas that strive to be low impact and (often) small scale (not mass tourism). What does sustainable

mean? Doing something in a way that minimises damage to the environment and avoids using up natural resources. For example - using renewable resources wherever possible or locally produced food. Why is mass tourism NOT

eco-friendly? * Tourists consume huge amounts of food and water from the local environment, severely depleting resources. * Tourist resorts consume huge amounts of energy, often from fossil fuels. * Tourists often travel by jet plane in huge numbers; increasing atmospheric pollution from the planes.

* Tourist resorts damage the natural environment through building and drainage schemes. What is ecotourism? Ecotourism stems from 2 concepts - stewardship and conservation. Stewardship is careful management of the environment on a large scale across regions, nations and even

internationally. All developments are planned sustainably. Conservation is more LOCAL in its nature allowing local people to be involved. Why is ecotourism important for future generations?

Ecotourism Case Study: Galapagos Islands, Ecuador. http:// www.youtube.com/watch?v=jBiLFjK_Ztw&playnext=1&list= PLB4F8E3AB9195AA83&feature=results_video&safe=active

http://www.pikaialodgegalapagos.com/index.php?/ Environmental-sustainability-main/the-environmental-sustainability-of-pikaia-lodge-in-the-new-l Facts and figures The Galapagos Islands are most famous because many of the plants and animals found there are not found anywhere else in the world. This is because the islands are isolated or cut off from

the rest of the Worlds land mass by the Pacific Ocean, allowing the plants and animals to evolve in their own way for hundreds of thousands of years. This was noted by Charles Darwin, and spurred him on to form his famous theory of evolution. Approximately 90% of the Islands are designated as National parks and there are only 20,000 permanent human residents (although this has risen from 9,000

only 20 years ago), allowing for a high degree of protection of the environment. http:// coolgeography.co.uk/GCSE/AQA/Tourism/Sustainable/Case%20study%20Sust%20Tourism.htm What is the issue?
