Ecotourism refers to a sustainable form of traveling that conserves natural areas, maintains the well-being of locals and involves interpretation and education. It is supported with the help of an international network of individuals and institutions who ensure that tourists and tourism professionals are educated on ecological issues. It provides effective and economic incentives for enhancing bio-cultural diversity while generating financial benefits for local and private industries. At present, it is gaining traction over conventional mass tourism on account of the thriving travel and tourism sector.

Ecotourism Market Trends:
Due to the growing awareness about the adverse impacts of tourism, such as soil erosion, increasing pollution, and natural habitat loss, ecotourism is emerging as a new trend. Moreover, the rising popularity of immersive travel, solo trips, and outdoor recreational activities on account of rapid urbanization and increasing income levels is also contributing to the market growth. Apart from this, the leading hospitality providers are adopting unique and innovative strategies to create camps and eco-lodges and design trails and tours and investing in marketing campaigns via social media platforms. Besides evaluating environmental and cultural factors of ecotourism, they are also undertaking initiatives that promote recycling and focus on energy efficiency and water reuse, which further assist in offering economic opportunities to local communities. This, in turn, is stimulating market growth. Additionally, governing agencies of numerous countries are supporting ecotourism through marketing, education, information services, and collaborations with private enterprises, which is anticipated to expand the ecotourism market in the forthcoming years.
