The Great Barrier Reef Tourism By: Guiam, Maddie T and Alicia
Impacts of Tourism • All tourists need: • Accommodations • Transportation • Shopping and Entertainment • Water and Food • Waste and Sewage management
That means… If all the 2 million people need all of the above then what happens is… More workers to: • Entertain the people (like go diving with them, present shows, etc.) • Monitor the people (in order to protect the reef) • Serve food • Clean after them (maid service) • Transport the people to places
It gives more work opportunities for many and brings good money used for good purposes in but…That some people do nasty things like:- Steal live coral (break it off from the reef)- Step on coral- Throw trash around- Fish in the wrong areas DONT DO THIS!!!
