Main Description

Using detailed case studies and regional overviews, Ecotourism and Conservation in the Americas presents the views and experiences of scholars, practitioners, tour operators, and policy makers involved in ecotourism programs in the US and Latin America. The pros and cons of ecotourism for communities and ecosystems are explored, with particular attention paid to the ability of ecotourism to support sustainable development and conservation. The synthesis is inter-disciplinary, cross-cultural, and multi-scale and presents ecotourism as it is currently being practiced.
