Wildlife Watching and Tourism: A Study on the Benefits and Risks of a Fast Growing Tourism Activity and Its Impacts on Species
Publication and Source
This publication is produced by the Convention on Migratory Species and published by UNEP.
This publication shows that action is needed now to put effective controls in place on wildlife watching tourism. There are many good examples of what can be done to manage wildlife and tourism successfully. However, if tourism is allowed to grow uncontrolled, adequate protection of wildlife and the environment is difficult, if not impossible.
