Geotourism encompasses tourists looking at and appreciating natural landscapes including the landforms, rocks and processes that shaped them over time (see Geotourism by R Dowling and D Newsome). The Earth's landscapes and geological wonders have inspired people all over the world and are a fundamental part of a culture's identity. Many also form the basis for the establishment of protected areas and World Heritage Sites. An emerging area of geo-conservation and management is Geoparks, a UNESCO initiative. Geoparks are a nationally protected area containing a number of geological heritage sites of particular importance, rarity or aesthetic appeal. Geoparks achieve their goals through conservation, education and Geotourism.
