The academic study of adventure tourism is rapidly increasing in popularity, with research beginning to focus on it heavily. This book is a cohesive and comprehensive look at this multi-million dollar industry sector from a variety of perspectives relevant to the teaching of tourism. Ideal for the undergraduate student taking adventure tourism as a single subject degree or as part of their tourism management studies, this book documents, analyzes and offers insight into the latest research in the area. It includes analysis of products, trends, climate change, risk management and environmental management and many others. The 'Subsectors' section within the book offers an overview of the twenty or more definable sectors within the adventure tourism industry considering their origins and history, latest trends and demographic groups. The author then goes on to look in more detail at: Wildlife Tourism, Marine Tourism, Helitourism, and Boardsports. Each chapter will include seven pedagogical elements: introduction - what the chapter does and doesn't cover plain-language review of the chapter topic with minimal referencing - essentially like lecture notes concluding paragraph to the review section explaining how it leads to the next chapter(s) review of recent research, condensed into tables where possible revision notes - a few pages of bullet points summarizing the review and research a sample set of assignment questions, three to six per chapter in some cases readings on relevant topics, condensed from previous publications.

The effects of tourism on the ecology and natural environment of tourist destinations are hotly debated and research has expanded in the field of ecotourism and sustainability. This book considers the positive contributions that tourism can make to the conservation of global biodiversity by reviewing and analysing the economic and political contributions of tourism to conservation through establishment of private game and wildlife reserves, lodges and tourist facilities. Featuring 100 international case studies from private marine reserves to bird watching lodges, this book covers key topics including sources of capital and operational funding, corporate and organisational structure, marketing strategies, primary conservation outcomes and spin-off effects, links to public protected areas, future plans and global trends.

As a counterpart to the growing volume of more theoretical literature in ecotourism, this volume provides a global compilation and analysis of 170 real-life case studies in ecotourism. It includes ecotours on land and sea, ecolodges and resorts, private reserves and public parks. The case studies range from the world's best models to test cases, small to large, unique to representative. Data is drawn from independent audits by the author and others, and from published reports from universities, multilateral and non-government organizations. The book shows what ecotourism can achieve and what constraints it faces, and provides a comprehensive reference for ecotourism enterprises, development agencies and university teaching.

All forms of tourism have impacts on the natural environment. The impacts of ecotourism tend to be concentrated in areas of highest conservation value, hence the need to manage and minimize these. The book considers impacts of particular activities, such as hiking and camping, off-road vehicles, and recreational boats, and impacts specific to certain ecosystems e.g. marine environments, polar coasts, mountain environments. It incorporates reviews of better-studied impacts, by well-known experts and case studies of recent research and less well-known issues.

There is interest in measuring the sustainability of tourism in general, and of ecotourism in particular. Hitherto, it has been difficult for consumers to know whether claims of tourism destinations and products being "ecological and sustainable" are based on hard evidence. The tourism industry has therefore been developing methods to measure these objectively in the form of ecolabels. This book reviews the subject. Emphasis is placed on the criteria used in ecolabels to determine sustainability, the marketing of ecologically-labelled tourism products and the management of current ecolabels and awards.
