Traveling lightly through places of fragile beauty

Topic: Is Ecotourism part of the solution or part of the problem?

Margie /


Is it somehow wrong to want to see as much of the planet as possible before it's changed forever? If I really care about living green, maybe I should stay home, devote more time and resources to saving what's left - protecting biodiversity, reducing green house gases, etc. My sense of urgency and outrage are strong, but it's hard to stay focused. There's nothing like immersing oneself in nature and experiencing global challenges first hand to inspire and motivate us to action, but at what cost to the planet?
