Ecological tourism or Ecotourism is a form of environmentally responsible tourism. It is a low-impact and small-scale form of travel aimed at avoiding the alteration of each place’s ecosystem and favouring the active and socioeconomically beneficial involvement of local communities. Ecotourism involves travel and visitation to relatively undisturbed natural areas with the object of enjoying, admiring, and studying the nature (the scenery, wild plants and animals), as well as any cultural aspect (both past and present) found in these areas, through a process which promotes conservation and has a low impact on the environment and on culture.
