Written by Mark Millard   
ecotorismThe International Ecotourism Society defines ecotourism as 'responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment and improves the well-being of local people'.

This means that those who provide and participate in ecotourism activities should follow the following 7 principles:

  1. 1. Minimize their impact
  2. 2. Build environmental and cultural awareness and respect
  3. 3. Provide positive experiences for both visitors and hosts
  4. 4. Provide direct financial benefits for conservation
  5. 5. Provide financial benefits and empowerment for local people
  6. 6. Raise sensitivity to host countries' political, environmental, and social climate
  7. 7. Support international human rights and labor agreements
