The Trouble With Ecotourism

A tourist posing for a photograph with a Galapagos Sea Lion (Zalophus californianus wollebaeki) pup, as illustrated in this article from CruiseGourmet Magazine extolling a “luxury adventure cruise” of the Galapagos Islands. I wonder if this is what Abercrombie & Kent (the cruise company) considers “immersion into the outstanding natural environment” of the islands?

Addendum: Richard Hammond of The Guardian takes a critical look at ecotourism here.
