Our research on protection of nature conservation around the world shows that, whilst they often have the technical ability to restore and protect habitats and wildlife, most countries are looking for the economic means of securing protection. Wildlife watching and nature based tourism is cited as an important means of making nature conservation pay. According to the Quebec Declaration on Ecotourism, ecotourism...
"embraces the principles of sustainable tourism... and the following principles which distinguish it from the wider concept of sustainable tourism:
Contributes actively to the conservation of natural and cultural heritage.
Includes local and indigenous communities in its planning, development and operation, contributing to their well-being.
Interprets the natural and cultural heritage of the destination to visitor.
Lends itself better to independent travellers, as well as to organized tours for small size groups".
However, Ecotourism is not always a successful solution to sustainable development problems. The course examines the environmental, social, economic and cultural issues associated with Ecotourism.

The course has been designed to offer graduates opportunities to enter employment at three levels of the ecotourism industry:

1.Operational - working for a tourism or ecotourism company or NGO on the ground, or setting one up.
2.Planning - working for a local authority or for the regional office of a tourism company.
3.Policy - working for a central government agency/quango or NGO, making policy directly related to tourism.
In addition, it focuses on the management of natural and built resources for tourism purposes. In this respect it provides a much-needed supply-side perspective on tourism management and development. We hope that our graduates will play an important role in improving the integrity of this rapidly growing industry.
