The effect of non-consumptive tourism (e.g. wildlife viewing, photographing, feeding), could be as deleterious as that of consumptive tourism (e.g. hunting), even though no animal is directly hunted and removed from its natural habitats. Sustaining the benefits from wildlife tourism for recreation, education, and conservation efforts requires strategic and long-term management planning to ensure that the adverse impacts of wildlife-tourist interactions are minimized.

Zoning is a commonly used strategy to protect sensitive wildlife habitats. Normally, public access to these sites is prohibited during the critical breeding and nesting periods, when the animals are most vulnerable. Providing shelters or decks for viewing wildlife from a distance during these periods is an important ingredient in wildlife tourism. Scheduling other recreational activities at certain times of the year should also be taken into consideration in wildlife management.

Public education and general awareness about biodiversity conservation is a valuable tool to reduce the impact from tourism. However, changing tourist attitudes towards wildlife is not an easy task because of the complex inter-relationships between
• Visitors’ values,
• Motivations (e.g. against that of the wildlife manager)
• Satisfaction levels
• Norms (Knight & Gutzwiller, 1995; Orams & Hill, 1996)

Training the tour operators on the appropriate guiding principles to be followed is a must. With respect to wildlife tourism, the rules to be followed should be firm but adaptive to the changing nature of the wild species in their natural environments. In tours and travels to the various wildlife destinations are undertaken only in the presence of experienced tour guides and forest guards that adhere to the stringent rules and regulations put down by the government.

What is the difference between a Wildlife Biologist and a Zoologist? Im about to start my first semester of college and am majoring Science. I am planning on becoming a Wildlife Biologist or a Zoologist. Can anybody tell me what the difference is between the two? Which field would deal with major wildlife animals more such as tigers,elephants,lions,whales etc. Which out of the two would be more interesting? Thanks!!!!
