Abstract

This paper is an effort to consider various alternative implications that may result because of tourism's increasing concern and involvement in environmental issues. Professional meetings and literature are full of the new buzz words in the industry “eco‐tourism,” and “sustainable development.” Many meetings and conferences, such as the African Tourism Association and the Pacific Asian Travel Association, in this early period of the nineties are using the environment as the major issue concerning the future of tourism.
