Ecotourism is a growing trend in travel and encourages people to experience the world without leaving a large global footprint. That being said, there are many points that make Ecotourism important and intimate to both the traveler and the destination.
First of all, it aims to minimize the impact of visitors so that future generations can enjoy the same unspoiled beauties of nature that current generations are lucky enough to experience. Secondly, most destinations are rural or far-flung areas that are rarely seen by people, so those who wish to visit these locations must respect the land and culture of the people who inhabit the area. Finally, and most importantly, Ecotourism is about educating oneself about lesser known cultures and corners of the world while experiencing the beautiful flora and fauna of the region.
