ecotourism





A trip to semi-natural areas to understand the natural and cultural history of the place visited, taking care of the integrity of the ecosystem; providing economical opportunities in order to allow the preservation of natural resources, benefiting the local population. The benefits may be offset by the damage to the environment caused, for example, by getting to areas in question, especially if this involves air travel.
