Example text

Thirdly, ecotourism is conservation-led. As a segment of the tourism industry ecotourism has emerged as a result of ‘increasing global concern for disappearing cultures and ecosystems’ (Kutay, 1990: 34) and as a repudiation of ‘inappropriate tourism development’ which ‘can degrade a protected area and have unanticipated economic, social, or environmental effects on the surrounding lands’ (Ceballos-Lascurain, 1990: 1). Ecotourism then includes cultural and environmental awareness, environmental conservation, and empowerment of local people upon whose resources ecotourism depends (Chafe, 2007).

For technocentrism’s underlying principles are - an overt belief in the ability and efficiency of management - that problems can (indeed should) be solved by the use of objective analysis and recourse to the laws of physical science (and technology) - that the ‘natural’ authority of the above is legitimated with recourse to economic laws (Pepper, 1996) An ecocentrist perspective on the other hand would argue that reform is fundamentally necessary at all levels – a re-evaluation of our social, economic and educational institutions; indeed a complete reorientation of society as we currently know it (Capra, 1988).

Hore-Lacy notes Perhaps it arises from the Federal Governments boundless ability to be gulfed by some greenies, in this case by sticking the adjectives ‘ecological’ on the front of the Brundtland term sustainable development. A sleight of hand unique in the world I believe.
