Ecotourists Save The World was a book that gave a lot of information about places you can go to volunteer for activities involving conservation and the study of wildlife. I found it interesting that there were so many places around the world. It gives me hope knowing that there are so many people who care about the wildlife and conservations. From Alaska, all the way to Thailand, there around many programs spread throughout the world. There are many helpful ways to “give back” and make the best and most positive environmental impact during the travels. I like reading about all the different places that people went to and all their experiences that they encountered. The fact that there are over 300 international adventures to conserve for habitats is beyond amazing. The amount of information there is for each place is overwhelmingly great.
