Planeta.com Working DocumentThe year 2002 has been declared the "International Year of Ecotourism" by the United Nations (click here for our exclusive guide). This is a time for celebration as "ecotourism" achieves its potential around the globe.
The Planeta.com website -- www.planeta.com -- deals broadly with environmental travel in the Americas. This section is a book-in-progress intended for travelers, researchers and entrepreneurs interested in exploring ecotourism. We explore both the definitions as well as the applications. Regional profiles are included as well as useful references. The goal is to have this document in print by the end of 2001.
While this is a practical guide, this document is not a cheerleading effort. We pay close attention to the problems that promoting nature tourism may cause physical and cultural environments. We're also paying attention to what the United Nations does in preparation for the 2002 event. Feel free to make suggestions, either via email or using our online club.
