bm265 Developing Ecotourism in Cambodia

by bicyclemark

It is not easy to go to a country like Cambodia and develop an ecotourism project that involves preserving forests while generating income. Many obstacles will appear, not to mention the amount of people who simply don’t believe it can be done right.  Katie Matlack has been working on one such project, and on one recent afternoon we sat together in a park in Bangkok, to discuss that project.

We discuss:

  • Wildlife Alliance
  • Cambodia, the situation
  • How the project works
  • Downside to ecotourism
  • Green Architecture
  • Funding and progress
  • And more–
