It is not time for us to educate every thinking tourist to help this concept by booking ecotours, ecotourism guest houses and other set ups to promote ecotourism that can serve the purpose. If we continue to use 5 star hotels, we will only promote rich people and the poor who own the resource will sell for money and when environment is depleted we will all not eat money.
