The purpose of ecotourism is to foster an appreciation of nature and culture while promoting conservation, supporting sustainable community development, minimizing tourism’s negative impacts, and providing for the active, beneficial involvement of local communities. It also enables communities to thrive economically while preserving and restoring the resources on which the travel and tourism industry and local communities depend. In this course, you'll learn the basics of ecotourism, elements of a good tour, and strategies for planning around safety concerns.
