  2. Yes. Ecotourism not only allows you to experience flora and fauna in the forest that are not usually seen in our daily life, we can also learn to conserve our natural resources to save our world. Plus, it is very fashionable and popular.

    Personally, after reading this article, I would want to try an ecotour. I hope it would truly be a beautiful and eye-opening experience for me.

  3. Yes I agree, because Global Warming not only affects your local country, but other countries too. So you should respect other countries as other people live there too and take it as if it is your own home. On the tour, you enjoy your holiday and learn about conservation and in the process, you also give them the money to continue running the place and for projects.

  4. Yes, I agree with what the article says as it is very good and important idea for our world. As our world is in a very poor condition now, ecotourism helps us give the places a better condition. Due to ecotourism, more people will want to come to these places. Just like what this phrase states, "Leave nothing behind you except footprints and take nothing away except photographs." So i think that ecotourism is very important.

  5. Yes I do agree with what the article says. Ecotourism can let us have adventures without us doing damage the environment. Instead of dining in restaurants, we can try the country's local cuisine. Ecotourism can also let us enjoy ourselves and save the environment at the same time. By buying local things and doing what the locals do, we can also learn more about the country.

  6. Yes, I agree. Eco-tourism allows people to communicate with new people and to visit new places and learn about new things without damaging the environment. It certainly does not benefit the environment in any way but it does not damage the environment as much as commercial forms of tourism.

  7. Sean's Opinion:

    I really do agree with this ecotourism stuff. The ecotourism helps out the local environment while giving the tourist a really great experience. All forms of tourism needs should be more like them.

  8. CN: Yes, I agree with the article. Ecotourism helps you open your eyes to the beauty of the nature, as most of us are born in an advance world, we usually enclose ourselves from the beauty of Mother Nature thinking that technology is always the best. Ecotourism also saves the environment for the next generations to come, and also to preserve the nature for the current.

    PL: Yes, I agree with the article. Ecotourism not only preserves the beauty of nature, it also enables us to have a luxurious holiday and yet not ruining Mother Nature at the same time. Although cost to build that kind of environment may be higher, I believe that companies will invest in this long-term investment. I personally think that ecotourism is a great idea to travel and yet contribute to save the environment at the same time other than reduce, reuse and recycling at the same time at home.

  17. Yes, we agree. Ecotourism is a mix of responsible tourism, alternative tourism, sustainable tourism, nature tourism, adventure tourism, educational tourism and more. Ecotourism helps a country to promote their culture through tourism, saves the environment as it does not harm the environment because they do not perform any activities that harm the environment, such as buying souvenirs made from the parts of endangered animals and plants.
