B.C. is one of the most beautiful places in the world.
The B.C.’s eco tourism focuses on wilderness adventures, and promoting the super natural wonder that makes up our Province.
Our flora, fauna, and local first nations culture are our primary attractions. Responsible eco tourism minimizes the adverse effects of human impact on our natural environment, while at the same time promoting its wonder and beauty.
Eco tourism is flourishing rapidly throughout B.C.. Tourists themselves are evolving, as nature, heritage, and outdoor recreational destinations gain more prominence for them. This presents both a challenge & an opportunity for both government and private operators. Eco tourism must benefit local populations economically & culturally, in order to secure incentives to protect the natural resources that create these attractions in the first place.
In an era of increased environmental awareness, and accessibility to back country locales, tour operators & local government are actively promoting our natural resources to entice this new breed of tourist. The challenge to eco tourism is in preserving our natural resources, while promoting them, & accommodating the many tourists drawn to our Province through this publicity.
Businesses are creating countless eco tourism opportunities, and local communities & governments are working alongside these businesses to promote their areas.
B.C. is an amazing place, full of wonder, grand vistas and friendly people. The eco tourists are beginning to realize this and the province has become a destination of choice for those looking for wilderness adventures.
British Columbia is a premier, world class eco tourism destination. This will foster economic stability, while helping to preserve the remaining wilderness areas of our Province.
Now we have the Kinder Morgan Threat! This pipe goes against all that BC is known for, we have such an incredibly beautiful province. The coastal region and all of BC is in dire need of protection from these oil pimps. In 2015 there were 127,700 employed directly in tourism and i would suspect a lot more that were indirectly employed, it is the biggest economic driver in BC. I am appalled that both the Premier of Alberta and the Prime Minister are both willing to endanger this for a few jobs in Alberta, and it appears that this is a swap for Alberta getting on board with the proposed carbon tax. It has nothing to do with the national interest, it is all about selling us out to appease Alberta.
