- We found no evidence for the effects of adopting ecotourism on forests.
'No evidence' for an action means we have not yet found any studies that directly and quantitatively tested this action during our systematic journal and report searches. Therefore we have been unable to assess whether or not the action is effective or has any harmful impacts. Please get in touch if you know of such a study for this action.
Ecotourism can be defined as responsible travel to natural areas that aims to conserve the environment, sustain the well-being of the local people, and often involves interpretation and education. Ecotourism in forested areas can therefore potentially benefit the habitat.
