Ecotourism for Wildlife Conservation

Ecotourism can be a viable source of local income, and wildlife is the main source of ecotourism. In an effort to boost domestic and international tourist inflow in the state, Arunachal Pradesh is investing in initiatives to become an exotic adventures and tourism hub of India. With the fast-growing development of the state, and as a result of human activities, the biodiversity of Arunachal Pradesh is under serious threat. Population growth and resource consumption, climate change and global warming, habitat conversion and urbanization, invasive alien species, over-exploitation of natural resources and environmental degradation are serious threats for wildlife. Marine diversity is in threat from Industrial fishing, over exploitation of target species, pollution and eutrophication, degradation and destruction of the sea floor by excessive beam trawling, dredging, sand and gravel extraction.

Ecotourism helps in building awareness and encouraging the unique attractions the state has to offer at the village level, specifically near existing and potential protected areas.

MyGov Arunachal Pradesh seeks suggestions from citizens on enabling the growth of Ecotourism as a means to conserve wildlife.
