Abstract

This chapter introduces the key stakeholders involved in ecotourism and provides an overview of some of the major challenges faced by the ecotourism industry in addressing, developing and implementing quality ecotourism. The following chapters present fourteen chapters from a range ecotourism stakeholders including tourists’, communities’, protected area managers’, ecotour guides’ and ecotourism industries’. This part of the book explores a range of stakeholders’ views on how best to pursue quality in ecotourism, or specific elements pertinent to ecotourism principles. Some of these stakeholders have not had a strong, or indeed, any voice in the ecotourism debate, and they bring refreshingly different perspectives to the discussion.
