Tourism to Earth's most threatened areas surges by over 100 percent in last decade

nt.

The report illustrates how tourism development guided by the principles associated with ecotourism environmental sustainability, protection of nature, and supporting the well being of local peoples can have a positive impact on biodiversity conservation and provide important economic alternatives for local communities.

"Integrating biodiversity conservation into tourism planning can result in better business for the industry, while destroying the environment would be considered synonymous with killing the goose that lays the golden egg," said Russ Mittermeier, President of Conservation International.

With the growth of international tourism expanding from 25 million in 1950 to more than 450 million today, tourism's reach into the last pristine areas of the planet has brought the industry onto the agenda of conservation groups as well as the United Nations Environment Programme. Based upon two years of research, the report aims to help chart a positive way forward for tourism development.
