Most people who can travel have only traveled to see things or even to see nature but they have not been aware of any deeper ramifications. Eco tourism will help people to realize what the natural world is really all about, what impact they are having on it, and how they can help or hurt.
People who go on ecotourism trips can gain better perspective the environment which they visit. They can interact with normal people and see the natural environment rather than just tourist attractions. In this way, neglected areas can raise awareness about the ecological problems they face and they can raise much needed money to for preservation.
