    Abstract

    "Ecotourism is tourism that involves travelling to relatively undisturbed natural areas with the specific objective of studying, admiring and enjoying the scenery and its wild plants and animals, as well as any existing cultural aspects (both past and present) found in these areas..." (Ceballos-Lascurain 1983) This was the original definition of ecotourism made over twenty years ago. This study will be evaluating where ecotourism came from, what has been done with it, its current problems, the ones it faces in the future and what prospects it has. It covers definitions and priorities in ecotourism, management, methods used in analysis, labelling, legitimacy, and possible pathways for its future. It begins by looking over ecotourism's history, and then uses current proposals and a survey of ecotourism operators to explore what will become of ecotourism.
