“Eco-tourism is travel to fragile, pristine and usually protected areas to be low and (usually) small scale. It helps educate the traveler; provides funds for conservation; directly benefits the economic development and political empowerment of local communities; and fosters respect for different cultures and for human rights.”

Martha Honey

Shaw and Williams

“Tourism and environment is fundamental, with a strong element of mutual dependency.”

“In essence there are two broad considerations that help unravel the complexities of tourism-environmental impacts, these being: the type of tourism; and the characteristics of the environment.”

“Mass tourism need not be uncontrolled, unplanned, short-term, or unstable.”

“It has yet to be proven that all examples of mass tourism are unsustainable” and that such unproven assumptions “have led researchers away from the difficult but much more important task of resolving how mass tourism can be made more sustainable.”

Butler 1992
