    I used The Galapagos Island and talked about sustainable tourism, ecotourism, jobs for locals and things like that.
    Do you think this is okay? I was going to do Jamaica, but I changed my mind for some reason!

    yesss I did Jamaica also for the labelling I got I think CA as the mosque was inner city and the business park was suburbs since its a fairly modern thing. For populaiton change you talk about asia increasing and the others not so much note ocesanis foesnt chang. difference is that ecotourism = less people. for population i did china's 2 CHILD Policy. Finally, for Jamazica, yoi talk about 1) Community tourism, means no hotels etc. preserves the enviornment, also ecotourism means you can simply view wildlife sancturies, without being obtrusive to animals, so you dont harm them, also Jamaica is trying to promote inland areas such as Blue Mountains so tourism is more spread around = less foot erosion, and then I explained these.

    Yes, I did. I talked about balloon and horseback safaris instead of traditional jeep safaris and how they reduced congestion. I also talked about golf city in Nairobi and how this reduced reliance on honeypot sites in the national park. I then talked about how the entry fees from the parks are re-invested in rangers to protect wildlife.

    People who did tourism, what did you put for the annotating the graph of tourism change??
    It was a very tricky question.

    I did Kenya, however I think Tataquara lodge is also acceptable because it kind of reduces negative impacts on the environment tourism has such as the use of electricity; Tataquara lodge uses solar panels which doesn't in anyway disrupt the income of the lodge.

    On the other hand, there is a distinct difference in the specification between an ecotourism case study and tropical area case study.

    Well it said to suggest reasons so really you could've put anything within reason. I put about weather (good and bad), London Olympics in 2012 and (sorry to mention this) the 7/7 bombings.

    I was going to put the 7/7 terrorist attacks as well but then I saw tourism actually increased from 2005-9 so I put 9/11 as there was a clear dip between 2001-3. The impacts didn't have to be explicitly British, did they?

    The graph had a small section for context above the graph about England so I assumed it was England and I hope it is! :dong:

    I couldn't remember the year for 7/7 so just put terrorist attacks such as 7/7 and 9/11 scared. I mentioned end of banking crisis so more disposable income. And also swine flu - sure that was early 2000s sometime and we learnt about it as an external factor
