DescriptionIncreases in travel and tourism are leading to the destruction and degradation of many of our most pristine natural resources. Privatization, if utilized properly, can prevent these tourist generating destinations from mayhem. Privatization will ensure the quality of a travel experience as well as maintain the beauty and preservation of a destination. Traditionally, tourism has focused on publicly managed national attractions such as, National Parks and Forests; however, public agencies are not able to meet the demand of recreational tourists. Many of our tourism destinations are operated under a mass tourism framework.
