Support eco-tourismA coastal and marine researcher has stated that one of the best ways to offer a major boost to the economy of South Africa is by creating over a million jobs while raising the various efforts for conservation in this part of the world.

 

A research fellow at the Nelson Mandela University, Doctor Lorien Pichegru who is associated with its Institute for Coastal and Marine Research recently stated about how science and tourism can be effectively utilized in conservation attempts.

 

Pichegru feels that marine eco-tourism is likely to fetch more than a million jobs here and an R177 billion addition to the GDP of this country by the year 2033.

 

He added that a great way to fuse conservation with growth of the South African economy is via eco-tourism concept. Therefore, sustainable and responsible tourism can ideally co-exist and educate people by inculcating in them conservation issues and also leading to a greater number of jobs. They can also go a long way in protecting fishes and other marine organisms.

 

Pichegru said that a greater amount of investment in marine eco-tourism would lead to more conservation efforts.

 

He said that the presence of an eco-tourism initiative would emphasize the importance of dolphins and whales and also walk the extra mile to safeguard them.
