Our approach to ecotourism can be thought of as ethical exploration. We combine sustainable travel with ecosystem-level conservation and the explicit recognition of and respect for the rights of indigenous people. Ecotourism is more than just “nature tourism”; it has the explicit goal of benefiting local communities both environmentally and economically. By providing financial incentives through tourism, local communities can become empowered to fight against poverty, and in achieving a more sustainable sort of economic development, can better resist other more exploitative industries like mining, agriculture, ranching, or logging.
