I think Eco-Tourism is a great Career option. Almost everyone seems to be talking about How to start a Career in Eco-Tourism, while I want to first develop an understanding of What is a Career in Eco-Tourism. It had been a while since I was researching about a Career in Eco-Tourism, when I came across:

J.P. Maithani's professional point of view!
J.P. Maithani has worked in Eco-Tourism for 19 years & 2 months. J.P. Maithani has worked in Eco-Tourism as Chairperson in AAGAAS Federation. In J.P. Maithani's own words, this is how J.P. Maithani got into Eco-Tourism: "After completing my masters in Mass Communication from Garhwal University, I wanted to start my own enterprise and started an Eco-Tourism based activity in Pipalkoti in 1999 as I was always interested in mountaineering and trekking from childhood. I got my basic training in mountaineering and trekking from National Adventure Foundation, Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports."

Career Video on Eco-Tourism
In a video, J.P. Maithani has talked about various aspects of a Career in Eco-Tourism. J.P. Maithani started by explaining Eco-Tourism as: "Eco-Toursim is tourism directed towards exotic natural environments, intended to support conservation efforts and observe wildlife. It is about uniting conservation, communities, and sustainable travel. This means that those who implement, participate in and market ecotourism activities should adopt the following ecotourism principles: Minimize physical, social, behavioral, and psychological impacts." It was an amazing video with great information.

I found the video unique because it talked about Education in terms of things which can be learnt from books, to excel at a Career in Eco-Tourism and not as a list of Qualifications, which one needs to get into Eco-Tourism. J.P. Maithani touches upon these in the Education section of the Video:
Local Context
90% success in real life depends on Skills. It is crucial to understand these.
J.P. Maithani then explains why these Skills are essential for a Career in Eco-Tourism:
Resource Management and Mapping
Physical Fitness
Positives of this Career are quite interesting.
J.P. Maithani believes that the following are some of the Positives of a Career in Eco-Tourism:
Local Resource Based Economy
Reverse Migration
Ecological Impact
Challenges are the other side of Positives and this Career is no exception.
And, J.P. Maithani believes that one needs to prepare for following Challenges of a Career in Eco-Tourism:
Institutional Support

Social Mindset
