Ecotourism

Logging alone cannot make enough profit to support the conservation area and in 2002 , 60% of PfB’s income came from educational visits by students from the USA and from tourism. This is not the usual tourism of holiday brochures but what is called ‘ecotourism’. This word sometimes just means holidays which focus on wildlife and natural beauty, but it should mean much more. Real ecotourism makes as little impact as possible on the environment; respects the culture of local people and ensures that most of the money paid out by the tourists stays in the local economy. It can also involve some kind of education for the travellers about the local conservation issues.
