Ecotouristm Development in Russia,

Within the next ten years, Russia may have a chance to become one of the worlds most attractive nations for tourism focused on nature and environmental education. Yet less than a decade ago, during ecotourisms first stages of development in Russia, almost no one supported the idea. As recently as 1995 and 1996, many environmental organizations were either uninterested in ecotourism or actively opposed its development in zapovedniks. To the private sector, ecotourism seemed too complex and troublesome, and did not promise exceptional profits. Zapovednik directors, with few exceptions, could not understand why ecotourism was needed at all.
