Take Only Photographs, Leave Only Footprints: The environmental impacts of wildlife tourism
Reviewing a broad range of different wildlife-related tourism initiatives and approaches, this paper examines the environmental impacts associated with them. It clearly indicates that it is not possible to make generalisations about such environmental impacts, and argues that proposals for wildlife tourism projects need to be considered on a case by case basis. The report then identifies areas where further research is needed to inform effective policies and planning for wildlife tourism.
