Tourism and Development

Nick Quattrone

What is happening?

About 60% of the world's population lives within 60km of the coast. Tourism in coastal areas are a large 80%. It often destroys local culture without contributing to the local income.

Why is this happening?

People enjoy the coasts. Visiting, living, although it may be fun to go and do some of the recreational activities we are destroying the coasts. More than 46,000km of the coastline is now urbanized.

How can we help?

People need to stop invading the coast because they are destroying it. They aren't even doing their part by contributing to the local income. If you don't help out the way you are supposed to then, you don't deserve to live there.
