One of the fastest growing tourism sectors is ecotourism, which focuses on responsible tourism that has a positive effect on the host nation's natural and cultural environment. This form of tourism is particularly important for the nonhuman primates, which are often indigenous to developing regions and are frequently targeted for wildlife viewing excursions. Ecotourism has the potential to support conservation efforts, public education, and sustainable development, but more systematic evaluation is needed to assess the costs and benefits of ecotourism on both human and nonhuman primate populations.
