Often the farmers would provide a home-stay opportunity and education. The essential benefit is for the local people, not tour operators or hotels. How this is possible?

Thoughtful nature lovers and tour companies became concerned to ensure that their holidays were not putting environments and species at risk. A question of the not killing the goose that lays the golden egg really. Over time a greater emphasis was placed on the impacts of tourism on local people as well as environments and species.
