Ecotourism is a form of travel that puts a great emphasis on maintaining and preserving the nature. This form of tourism comes under the concept of sustainable tourism which aims to minimize negative impact on natural ecosystem. Ecotourism involves travelling to remote and pristine destinations where the fauna, flora, and cultural heritage are the center of attractions. The Global Ecotourism Network (GEN) defines ecotourism as "responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment, sustains the well-being of the local people, and creates knowledge and understanding through interpretation and education of all involved (visitors, staff and the visited)". The market includes expenditure incurred by travelers from North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. The ecotourism market is studied for international outbound travel only.
