Ecotourism is a booming business that many tour operators cite as being helpful nature. Every year, millions people descend protected and pristine natural areas to observe rare species. However, a new report casts doubt the value this form tourism. In fact, it suggests that ecotourism is more damaging than helpful nature. Details are a report published the journal 'Trends in Ecology and Evolution'. Researchers believe tourists are disrupting animals their natural habitat. They pointed a recent event where sea turtles in Costa Rica had problems laying their eggs because the hordes of tourists who had congregated to watch the turtles' nesting habits.

The report says that ecotourism is making animals bolder and that this could endanger the animals. A regular human presence might make animals tamer and less cautious other animals around them, and this could put them risk of being attacked their natural threats. "Then they will suffer higher mortality when they encounter real predators," the report says. It added: "When animals interact 'benign' ways humans, they may let their guard." The report said it was essential, "to develop a more comprehensive understanding how different species different situations respond to human visitation and what precise conditions human exposure might put them risk."
