Abstract


  • Tourism is growing rapidly throughout the world, including nature‐based tourism, but natural

    habitats are shrinking. How do we avoid damaging what is left as an increasing number of visitors

    wish to experience nature or enjoy adventure or relaxation in natural surroundings? This issue

    explores various environmental impact factors, from the physical effects of trampling through the

    disturbance of wildlife to the attitudes of visitors and how well‐run tourism ventures might modify

    their behavior.
