The Benefits of Ecotourism: What Are We Trying to Sustain?

By Taylor Stein, Ph.D.
Professor, School of Forest Resources and Conservation
University of Florida

Ecotourism is often touted as “sustainable,” but what are we trying to sustain?

Research and practice shows that tourism to natural destinations can potentially provide valuable environmental, social, and economic benefits.

This presentation will provide a brief overview of the wealth of benefits well-managed tourism and recreation to natural areas (i.e., ecotourism) can provide to the environment, local communities, and tourists themselves.

It will also address practical ways in which tour operators, land managers, and government officials can help sustain the benefits ecotourism has the potential to provide.
