Abstract

As the ecotourism industry has grown, a diversity of courses have been developed to provide training to meet the needs of the industry. However, the influx of a growing number of graduates into the industry raises questions related to the courses, the industry, and the links between them. To consider these issues, a workshop was held during the annual conference of the Ecotourism Association of Australia in 1999. This paper introduces some of the issues under discussion, describes some of the key themes arising from the workshop, and identifies further questions, and possible directions which could be followed to deal with some of these issues.
