Hector Ceballos is the Director General of the Program of International Consultancy on Ecotourism (PICE) and a Special Advisor on Ecotourism to IUCN (The World Conservation Union), and the World Tourism Organization (WTO).

Ecotourism is proving to be a very important component in protected areas management around the world. Strictly speaking, ecotourism is the only type of tourism that should be allowed in protected areas. All management plans should include strict guidelines for developing ecotourism activities within national parks and other natural protected areas, including development of appropriate physical infrastructure and facilities. An updated overview of developments in selected countries from around the world is given.

This clip is taken from a larger presentation at the John Hope Franklin Center's Wednesdays at the Center series, "Ecotourism and Protected Areas Management around the World". Ceballos-Lascurain's presentation was sponsored by Working Group Environment in Latin American, Nicholas School of the Environment, and Duke University Center for Latin American & Caribbean Studies.
