Eotourism is an approach to encourage tourist to visit an area of natural beauty combined with esteemed importance on the grounds that what is paid for the experience.
Is that put into the preservation of the area? its species and its local people?
It has become very popular and almost stylish for western holiday makers to go on an ecotourism holiday and in general it seems to work out very well for the area being visited. However what if those attempts to preserve an area by encouraging tourisms actually causes degeneration in that area, wouldn't this be somewhat contradicting?

We hope that change can be brought about that will enforce countries to abide by the legislation that is set up to protect areas that need such protection. These areas are for the good of all, not for the pockets of a few.
We need your help and the help from everyone who honestly sees this particular shade of ecotourism as a contradicting problem rather than an effective and sustainable solution.your support for all campaigns and for all efforts across the globe in combating such unacceptable and unsustaining activities.
