Without adequate concern for environmental protection this development could cause ecological threats. Introducing eco-tourism and the underlying support infrastructure and facilities has harvested many benefits in countries that have unique cultural and natural resources. A number of research studies and survey efforts have been undertaken during the period between 1996 and 1999 with the aim to instigate parameters for encouraging eco-tourism development and the necessary control mechanisms.
