Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Tourism can have devastating effects on the ecology, so the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) is promoting ecotourism, or traveling responsibly to avoid harming a habitat's delicate ecology of flora and fauna. The WWF has established projects around the world to help promote this idea and in this beautifully illustrated book shows how to put together a trip that is ecologically responsible. It describes 68 widely varied ecojourneys for the ecotraveler. These destinations span the seven continents and represent some of the world's most stunning natural terrain. The more than 400 photographs are spectacular. Whether or not the reader becomes a complete ecotourist, the book is an excellent reminder to all travelers that they need to help maintain our natural ecology and take note of our effect on the planet. There is also a detailed index and comprehensive sections on further reading, ecology organizations, and a glossary.
