Abstract

Ecotourism is a growing industry around the world. However, in more recent years, ecotourism has become more than just a business. Developing nations have seen ecotourism contribute meaningfully to the local economy, the environment and indigenous populations. Forward-thinking public-sector policies to appropriately incentive the industry have come a long way. And, as the public and private sectors work together to mitigate problems in the industry such as greenwashing amongst bad actors and the ethical and moral concerns of what can be described as cultural colonialism, the good actors offer pristine examples of how ecotourism can set the stage for larger but more sustainable commercial development
