Tourism, the soul source of income for all protected areas, no wait, for some protected areas where animal sightings are more frequent. Undoubtedly, tourism is a boon to conservation, but as tourists, citizens need to be more sensible and responsible about some ethical issues related to the adverse effects of tourism on the ecosystem, be it individually or cumulatively. Tourism should be unbiased and only then can it lead to adequate revenue, not only for the forest department but also to the local people for survival.
Tour guides and drivers need to take extra caution and they should provide standard instructions to the tourists about the rules. They earn their livelihood out of exploiting these forests. How can they let tourists cause irreparable damage just for some extra tips or an instant appraisal?? Thinking about the distant future.,It is their responsibility to make the tourists behave properly. They should be the boss! They should command but not in a rude manner, politely!
