The word ecotourism is something that has only recently become a mainstay in the English language. Tours to rainforest, gamer reserves, and wildlife sanctuaries are growing in every region of the world. They go in tent camps, on safaris, to jungle lodges, and to rainforest resorts. Inspired by zoos and the throngs of animal themed television shows, people are taking to the jungles and savannas to see the earth’s most fascinating creatures in the wild before it is too late. At the going rate, some say the Amazon will disappear within the next few decades unless drastic measures are taken. Other forests and regions are in danger too. When these go places go, as do the habitats of all of our favorite and most unusual creatures. Although in some places tourism growth has threatened wildlife, in most cases it inspires many to conserve it.
