Using knowledge gained from textbook and article readings and lectures supplemented by scholarly articles and primary research such as interviews. Examine how the tourism industry has affected the environmental social/cultural and economic stakeholders in that community. You should focus heavily on perceptions of those stakeholders which will require primary contact with these stakeholders. A minimum of one contact per stakeholder group (3 total) is required. Emails or transcribed phone calls are required.
Possible examples of stakeholders:
Environmental local watershed protection organization local park or trail ‘friends’ group local environmental protection group etc.
Social/Cultural local historic preservation society local social club such as Lions or Rotary local community group etc.
Economic local hotel owner/general manager local restaurant owner local tour guide (such as canoe/kayak tours horseback rides etc.) etc.
Sample questions (not an exhaustive list please come up with some of your own):
Do tourists/visitors frequent your community? What positive impact(s) do they have on the local environment/culture/economy? What negative impact(s) do they have? Do you want to see more/less tourists in your community? Why? Do you think they can be better managed somehow? How or why?
Finally make sure to note the name with correct spelling company or organization date/time of communication and method (email phone etc.). Please check APA rules for correct citation method. Please do include the interview as part of your APA reference list at the end of your paper
