    The Amazon region depends on deforestation for its economy, but this deforestation destroys the natural habitats of animals (many endangered) and contributes to huge amounts of CO2 emissions. Ecotourism is a potential way to replace the economic dependency on...

    What is Ecotourism? Concept Explanation and Goals

    Although ecotourism can look different from place to place, the goal remains the same- having a positive impact on the environment and communities you travel to, not a negative or neutral effect. This can be done in many ways,...

    Ecotourism in Costa Rica

    • Dear Kate,

      I am intrigued by your post, “Problems with Ecotourism” because it addresses a problem that many people don’t seem to think about. I feel people who enjoy ecotourism should be well-informed about how it affects the environment, which your post successfully does.

      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “But there are many problems that come from this type of tourism too that go against the very thing it tries to do.” I think that this is an interesting point because I feel like it summarizes your central idea. You state that there are many problems that come with ecotourism, and then state that it can go against the purpose of ecotourism. I feel like people should still be able to enjoy themselves while viewing the scenery, but should also be aware of what they do and how they can help preserve the area that they are in.

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because you seem to fundamentally understand the problems that come along with ecotourism. I am interested in what you have to say about other environmental problems as well.

    Kate commented on the post, Lawrence in Arabia

    Thanks for sharing your perspective of this book. It’s always great when books go past the biography aspect of the story and play on your emotions, especially in a book on war. Like you said, “We often fail to understand the emotions behind it all…” so it’s great when a book can show those emotions.
