As countries increase their investment in ecological construction and environmental protection, local governments rely on the advantages of forests, grasslands, wetlands, and oceans to develop eco-tourism. More and more funds are beginning to flow into the field of eco-tourism. So what is ecotourism?

In the past few decades, with the popularization of environmental awareness, the importance of environmental protection zone management concepts and the transformation of the consumer market, a different from traditional mass tourism, the combination of tourism activities with ecological protection, environmental education and cultural experience. The type of tourism has gradually emerged. This form of tourism is called ecotourism. People of insight actively advocate the green wave of environmental protection, and people's awareness of environmental protection awakens.

Eco-tourism is not an innovative reform nor a concept that has only recently been proposed. It is gradually derived from the past ecological protection structure. The origins of eco-tourism are diverse, and there are more than 100 definitions of rough statistics. After years of development, there are certain basic methods and frameworks.
