Ecotourism

Ecotourism is a fa├žade and is bad for the environment. First of all, there are no local benefits. Almost all of the profit is sent to foreign countries, and the low paying jobs like tour guides are given to the local villagers. Secondly, some of the projects are fake landscapes. These artificial areas are just for show to the tourists so they come back, also the false landscape tends to harm the plants and animals that live in the area. Lastly, some of the nature reserves have big companies install projects.
