 It makes people focus on the mesmerising beauty of the natural environment and teaches them to foster the ideas of conservation of our natural habitats. Green tourism is quite direct for financial benefits as well for the locals because of continuous traffic by travellers and tourists. The focus on the democracies of local people is often taken as a major point in this category of tourism. It promotes sustainable use of biodiversity by engaging work to the local people without migration.Fun fact, but ecotourism is incredibly an asset to our environment as it is taking care of water conservation and recycling.

 First of all, because of constant intruding in such untouched areas , things are difficult as a slight change in the habitat leaves major effects.This whole process of winning the world over will definitely cause ugly effects.Some way or the other construction relative to the increasing population there,  is also a damaging action. With time , industrialisation , urbanisation and advanced agricultural practices are creating chaos in the calm. Mismanagement by the government and environmentalists is leading to some lifelong consequences.

However, there are some regions in the world which are still untarnished and makes our Earth a wonderful place.One thing is for sure, Mother nature is super amazing and no one can take away its scintillating beauty.
