Chasing cayman and other ethical dilemmas

I’m in the process of putting together an article on some of the activities and elements of the jungle experience that some people find questionable, that some people in my group objected to, that I at times found a bit of a struggle.

It’s really difficult to balance up the need to educate and promote the jungle and attract tourists (partially to help it survive the battle against felling that has already happened following the discovery of oil in the region) alongside the need to preserve the flora and fauna and protect it from human influence.

I’ll post the article on the site at some point soon.

    Hey there, Came across your blog looking at reviews of Samona (also did a tour there). Wondering if you ended up writing this followup about the ethical issues, as it was something I thought a bit about too.

    • Hey Kat, welcome to my blog! Article is written but I’m just trying to find right place to publish. Check back soon! Did you enjoy the tour? How did you rate Samona?
