Impact of Tourism: Amazon

Kanopy (Firm)
Format
Video; Streaming Video; Online
Summary
Brazil now actively promotes the Amazon to tourists to bring money and jobs to locals. But how will tourism affect this environmentally vital area? And what form will tourism take? One option is "nature tourism". In the Amazon Ariau Towers, walkways give visitors a unique view of the rainforest and wildlife. But this is not necessarily eco-tourism. Critics question the effects on the local economy and wildlife.
