Ecotourism differs from other forms of nature-based tourism in that its core ideology is to promote education and awareness of the environment and heritage, help finance future conservation and improve the well-being of local people and environment (see The International Ecotourism Society) According to Ecotourism Australia ecotourism is “ecologically sustainable tourism with a primary focus on experiencing natural areas that fosters environmental and cultural understanding, appreciation and conservation".
