  • Thank you for sharing this! I really appreciate what Colin said in the beginning, which I think gives a great big-picture introduction to challenges facing wildlife tourism: "Tourism industry [by being so efficient in taking people anywhere in the world] has numbed us to the real effects of what's happening out there". I do hope that being part of the success, rather than contributing to and worsening the problem ("best protector of wildlife, not the worst destroyer"), will be the way forward for the tourism industry. As he noted, celebrating community success stories and business best practices, I think, will be one of the important ways to achieving this.
