Inequalities in elements rise between ecotourists and locals.
But here ecotourism’s life style and residents lifestyle is totally different. So because of this it leads to so many inequalities between them. Those elements are:
Because most of the ecotouristss are from developed countries, so their transportation is sophisticated and convenient but the ecotourism destinations regions are underdeveloped so here transportation facilities are very poor. So this makes ecotourists so much of troubles.
Here the ecotourists are from different region their level of education is different and the locals are from small region they don’t have school and they will be unaware of this. Most of the people are from this area are illiterate. It makes a lot of difference between local and ecotourists.
There is lot of differentiation in life expectancy of ecotourists and residents. Because the people who reside in the ecotourism destination areas doesn’t have any hospitals and good doctors. The people who reside there were unaware of the problems which leads to health’s problems. They don’t have hospitals and medical shops. There most of the areas use to take medicine from herbs, the way of curing the diseases is different. So life expectancy will be different for ecotourists and residents. So in this way they are differing in their life expectancy.
Culture and values:
There will be lot of variation in resident’s and ecotourists culture. Here the ecotourists are from different regions so their cultures are also different. Example South African culture and American tourist are totally different, so cultures are different for different ecotourists and in the same way the culture of locals is different. So here founds inequality in ecotourists and locals.
So in this way different inequalities will be raise among themselves because of culture, education, life expectancy, transportation, education etc.
