Course Description

Tourists from all over the world seem to be crowding into the “Thousand Places to Visit Before You Die.” These include many of the planet’s special (and sometimes remote) places, including Antarctica, Galapagos, the Amazon, Stonehenge, even our US national parks. Some of the questions we will consider are: Is tourism ruining them, both biologically and socially—or is it providing needed political and financial support? Is there a role for visitor quotas, lotteries, fees, or other strategies to limit use? What is the relation of tourism to the local people, often very poor, who live in and around them? Are there alternatives?  Lecture (plus Questions)
