Re: the Feb. 1 opinion piece, “Conservationists have missed the boat on ecotourism.” The headline should have read: “Developers and governments are missing the boat on ecotourism.”
Conservationists are generally busy running around putting out fires: proposals like salmon farms and golf courses in inappropriate places, gold mines that ignore watershed issues, rampant clearcutting and expropriation of Commons land.
Where are the conservationists out there with time on their hands and money to burn? Personally, I don’t know any of them.
