Transcript: Eco & Adventure Tourism Power Point Management Plans of Parks Canada Emphasis is moving from use to maintenance and protection Challenged with maintaining the integrity of parks’ ecosystems which is defined as” Having their native components intact Biodiversity Ecosystem processes Crown Lands Much of our Canadian wilderness is owned by the federal or provincial governments – known as Crown Land Most adventure tourism occurs on Crown land E.g. province of British Columbia 92% is provincial Crown land 1% is federal Crown land 5% is privately owned 2% covered by water Stressors Any event that causes the alteration or demise of a species External stressors: building of roads, establishment of businesses, increased use of land by people Stressors Other Stressors: Habitat loss or fragmentation (bears) Disappearance of top predators impacts whole food chain Pollution (air pollution, pesticides/herbicides) Alien Species (non native animals/plants) Overuse Adventure Tourism SOFT Adventure Less risky Less strenuous Little or no preparation E.g. trail hiking, canoeing on a small lake, etc. Adventure Tourism HARD Adventure Can be dangerous Person needs to be fit Person needs to have trained E.g. deep sea diving, white water rafting, hiking the West Coast Trail, etc. Ecotourism Responsible travel designed to educate the traveler about interrelationships & physiology of organisms & their environment Sustainable Tourism Responsible Tourism Ecotourism is often about Sustainability Sustainability: Ensuring that you do not use more than can be replaced, that you take care of the resources for future use. For example: If you use more trees than can be grown to replace the ones you use, you will soon run out of trees. This is NOT sustainable. If you make sure that all trees that you cut down are replaced by growing trees, then you will not run out of trees. This IS sustainable. Greenwashing – too many tour operators and suppliers using ecotourism to encourage clients yet NOT doing anything to ensure they are being responsible to our ecosystems Ecotourism cont’d Tourism supplier & consumer responsibilities: Minimizing negative economic & environmental impacts Generating greater economic benefits for locals Improving working conditions Involving locals in decisions that affect their lives Providing meaningful connections with local culture for tourists Providing access for physically challenged people The Ecotourism Market Segment Ecotourists tend to be more mature, have post-secondary education, prefer longer trips and are often willing to pay more for this type of tourism Growing areas of interest: cultural and heritage tourism TOURISM’S IMPACT ON THE ENVIRONMENT In some ways, Tourism is viewed as a “user” and “abuser” of the environment We need to limit harm to the environment There are 2 viewpoints : Tourism provides an incentive for the restoration of sites and for the conservation of natural resources Tourism means overcrowding, pollution and maybe even extinction of animal life and vegetation Tourism’s Impact cont’d Carrying capacity – the maximum # of people who can use a site with only acceptable alteration to the physical environment and only acceptable decline in the quality of the experience for future visitorS Tourism’s Impact on the Natural Environment Vegetation Water quality Wildlife Coastlines Mountains Deserts Balancing The Negative Environmental Impact Dealing with climate warming seriously Reducing carbon dioxide released into the air Fuel efficient, non-carbon-producing methods of energy Canada’s Green Plan It is hoped that at least 12% of Canada’s lands become protected spaces Environmental considerations must be a priority Canadians must be educated about conservation Green Committees in Hotels By: Muaz & Eldin Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education Canada Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education Canada Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education Canada Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education Canada Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education Canada Ecotourism cont’d Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education Canada Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education Canada Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education Canada Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education Canada Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education Canada Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education Canada Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education Canada
