Tourism in Central America
Ellie, Jordanna, and Camille's project
Animals are going extinct because of air pollution and taking away natural resources from them. Tourists visit the rainforest for many different reasons, but if the habitats in the rain forests are altered in any way this can be extremely harmful to a plant or animal species. Another effect of tourism is plants dying because of air pollution and then they can't give people and animals clean oxygen. Tourism companies are building large resorts that kill trees in the process. All the energy from these buildings cause blackouts for locals.
Sad... Trees are dying :*(

Effects of Regular Tourism
With all the energy being used by resorts and cruise ships there's not much left for locals. The locals of this region experience many power outages. Also there's lots of pollution from the ships and resorts and this makes the locals' air not as fresh as it could be. Another effect is overcrowding in buildings, streets, and popular places.
