If, from the point of view of economics and the profitability aspect of tourism, natural resources are taken into consideration and more important to planners, the tourism industry will become a factor for destruction and an excuse for profitability of nature. In other words, nature will become an instrument for income generation and will disappear. But from a forward-looking perspective, the growth of the ecotourism industry in protected areas and natural areas can conserve these valuable resources and prioritize the protection of the environment over the tourism industry.
