New book looks at Indigenous Ecotourism

Indigenous-peopleIn Australia and throughout the world, Indigenous peoples are becoming more involved in the tourism industry, particularly in ecotourism.A new book, Indigenous Ecotourism: Sustainable Development and Management,by Senior Lecturer in Tourism at JCU Cairns, Dr Heather Zeppel, Draws on case studies from the Pacific Islands, Africa, Latin America and Southeast Asia, Dr Zeppel examined ecotourism enterprises controlled by Indigenous people in tribal reserves or protected areas.

"The book has a specific focus on Indigenous ecotourism in tropical developing countries, with case studies of rainforest and marine ecotourism involving Indigenous peoples," Dr Zeppel said. "It compares Indigenous ecotourism in developed and developing countries and describes a wide range of cultural ecotours, ecolodges and bungalows, hunting and fishing tours, wildlife attractions and other nature-based facilities or services. "The environmental, cultural, social and political impacts of Indigenous ecotourism are also reviewed in the book."
