The countries who are now looking at ecotourism as an industry, aim to keep animals in their natural habitats, preserve habitats, foster scientific study, & educate the public on the need to preserve our forests & animal/plant species.
Hopefully the future will bring a renewed interest in conservation, a desire to let wild animals be wild, and we will see fewer zoos & wild animal rescue centers, because people will not feel the need to try to make pets out of these animals or make them perform in circuses.
