What is Ecotourism?
The International Ecotourism Society defines Ecotourism as 'Responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment and improves the well-being of local people'. Is this true? How responsible is Ecotourism?

What is Biodiversity?
From genetic diversity in animal populations, to different species of plants, to ecosystems like deserts or tundra - Biodiversity is an extremely broad term that describes the variety of life on Earth and the interactions between all these species, systems and variations.
Why is it Important?
We rely on biodiversity for countless things; food, resources, medical care, all of which we wouldn’t have, if it wasn’t for the natural processes which create these vital assets. But as we loose more and more biodiversity on a global scale, biodiversity loss is becoming an issue that, potentially, is more prevalent and damaging than climate change.
