Best Practice Guidelines For Great Ape Tourism
These guidelines have been developed for both existing and potential great ape tourism sites that wish to improve the degree to which their programme contributes to the conservation rather than the exploitation of great apes. The authors summarise lessons learned during three decades of great ape tourism and associated impact studies. They then present guiding principles and specific guidelines that are based on experience and impact studies.
