Rotorua: A Case Study in Sustainable Tourism (Enhanced DVD)
Rotorua, New Zealand, which sits on the edge of the "Pacific Rim of Fire," has enjoyed visitors and their economic contributions since the early 19th century. Nowadays, the island attracts four million visitors per year, and for good reason. Rotorua’s natural attractions run the gambit from hot mud pools to cool fresh water lakes. Because of the geothermal activity, the island features beautiful clouds of steam, spectacular geysers and relaxing hot springs. Mountain, rivers, lakes, waterfalls and natural forests all combine to give you an ecological experience you won’t soon forget. The volcanic landscape features mountain bike and hiking trails, as well as horseback riding, fishing and swimming opportunities. Plus, the Maori culture is celebrated every day. Educational materials are available online. Civic leaders work to ensure the island’s tourism is economically, socially and environmentally sustainable. This program shows you all the beauty and how it is all carefully sustained.
