IMPACTS OF TRAVEL AND TOURISM

The tourism industry impacts heavily on local areas and communities in a number of key ways. Economically, both domestic and international tourism can bring many benefits, although in some cases when you scratch the surface, it can also serve to deprive a local community of economic gain. Tourism also has sociocultural and environmental impacts, which can be destructive to local areas. This program presents a range of tourism impacts and highlights the importance of awareness of, and sensitivity to, the detrimental effects that poorly managed tourism can have. It also looks at sustainable tourism and strategies to minimise negative impacts. Please contact us for primary and secondary schools pricing.

IMPACT OF TOURISM: KENYA

Tourism is Kenya's third largest source of income. Last year alone, more than half a million tourists spent their holidays here. But what don't the tourists see? MASAI MARA: The Masai Mara is one of the best-known game parks in the world. All around the game park, mock villages have been built. Laden with baubles, the Masai embark on an aggressive sales pitch to the tourists. These fake villages are all that most tourists see while on safari. Meanwhile other Masai still live on their farms trying to maintain their traditional lifestyles, but are barely able to survive. SAFARIS: Safari tourism is highly popular. Tourists come by the thousands in their 4x4 vehicles to take pictures in the game reserves. When a leopard is spotted tourists take part in a photographic feeding frenzy - a traffic jam forms in the bush. Meanwhile Lewa is a 5-star private game reserve unknown to the general public - a luxury safari park, frequented by American millionaires. WINNING BACK RIGHTS: A few hundred miles away to the north are the ancestral lands of the Endoroi tribe - lands which the Kenyan authorities confiscated more than 30 years ago, to make way for a game park for tourists. Like the Masai, the Endorois want to be recognized as the rightful owners of the territory. And now they are - but only after a lengthy court case against the government.

GREEN MATTERS: WHAT IN THE WORLD IS GOING ON? ECO-TOURISM

What a novel idea, getting up close and personal with plants, animals and the environment and then leaving it just as it was found. Without impact, or damage! Sometimes that means bypassing that once in a lifetime experience or forsaking the urge for a take-home souvenir. It's important to remind ourselves that we're not alone in this world and to also understand, it's not fair to treat the rest of the world as if we are all that matters.

ECOTOURISM: A CASE STUDY

Ecotourism is a very young industry. In fact, fifteen years ago the term 'ecotourism' and its principles didn't even exist! Despite this, ecotourism is growing rapidly. While the annual growth rate of tourism overall is only 4%, ecotourism is growing at around 15%. The ecotourism model that has been developed in Australia is now being used as model for the development of ecotourism internationally. This program uses the Phillip Island Nature Park (PINP) as a case study to explore and illustrate the principles of ecotourism. The Phillip Island Nature Park is an excellent example because it has tours and attractions at all three levels of accreditation, and has been involved in ecotourism for many years. We follow Andrew, our presenter, as he travels to all the attractions of the Phillip Island Nature Park, and meets a wide variety of people, from rangers to marketing executives.
