留学生论文-tourist activity on the environment 

    Abstract:The impacts on environment can arise from the all form of tourist activity. The significant benefit to destinations is economic gains, and this leads to recreate and protect the environment. But the rapid growth of tourism influences put pressure on the environment as well.We must recognise that all forms of tourist activity have both positive and negative affects on the environment.
  Key words:tourist activity, environment, ecotourism
  1. Introduction
  As one of the world’s biggest industry, it also has to take on more responsibility for its impacts on economics, societies and environment. It is fundamental to consider the attitudes and behaviour of tourists when answer these questions, and they are related to the types of tourism。
  2. Main problems caused by mass tourist activity
  2.1 Pollution
  Obviously, according to tourist behaviour, mass tourist activities have more impacts on natural environment; they can be both direct and indirect. Firstly pollution should be seen as an important issue, including water, air and noise problems. Pollution is caused by many sources; one of them is tourist activities, for example organic wastes or oil from tourist boats which carry tourists to attractions. They are not all caused directly by tourist activities, but all related to these activities, especially for mass tourism , the mass tourists need more different kinds of facilities to satisfy their travel expectations. On the other hand, alternative tourism seems more ‘green’. And most mass tourism should make noise pollution; the activities lead to the disturbance of wildlife. Litter is consequence of tourist activity, and seriously affects the quality of the environment. Most of mass tourism destinations have litter problems; especially more and more drink cans, plastic bags, cups, etc. And the impact of quality of the environment can cause further problem, like water pollution .Pollution has been a main consequence of mass tourism in the world.
  2.2 Loss of natural resource
  Secondly it is about natural resource. A recent article (Vitousek et al, 1997 in Gossling 2002, p.284) mentions that “Human land use and land cover change have transformed 30-50 percent of the Earth’s ice-free surface” and “the use and conversion of lands is central to tourism” From the attributes of mass tourism, generally the tourists are in large groups and demand high quality and quantity of service resources, for example built facilities and so on; land is converted for the establishments for the shopping areas, picnic areas, golf courses, ski areas as well as the grounds for burying solid wastes of tourists. Accommodation is most important for tourist activity, it comprises the building area, roads, parking sites and surroundings, like gardens. Energy use is serious as well, the use of energy for tourist activity can be divided into transport and destination and related purposes. Tourists usually go to the destination and go on a few excursions. Energy overused exists and it also related to the pollution .According to the report of Jackson (1986 in Newsome 2002), a few Caribbean islands have water and power shortages, which are directly related to tourist activity demand exceeding local capacity. Table 2 indicates Global tourism-related energy use and resulting CO2 emissions. It summarizes the energy use for ourist-related transport, accommodation, and activities in the world. According to the conclusion of the article (Gossling 2002), transport may be responsible for around 94 percent of the contribution of tourism to global warming.
