What are some of the best ways to ensure sustainable eco-tourism while preserving nature and supporting local communities? I'm looking for ideas and experiences from people who have been involved in eco-tourism initiatives or have visited destinations that practice eco-tourism. Are there particular methods that have proven successful for preserving nature and supporting local communities? What are the benefits of eco-tourism, and how can travelers get involved in sustainable eco-tourism? I'd love to hear what other forum users have to say about this topic.
