Eco-tourism on the other hand is an entirely different approach. It is more scientific in nature, where not only are you engaging with the natural and cultural environment of an area in the most sustainable way possible, but are also keeping intact the integrity of the region. Conservation is central to ecotourism. This facilitates the protection of the natural habitat while creating economic opportunities for the locals. Education is a major component of eco-tourism.
