Synopsis

Marine environments have long been places of exploration, subsistence, transport and trade, but it is only recently that marine tourism has extended beyond coastal resorts and beaches. Demand for marine wildlife experiences has grown considerably in recent decades but a corresponding increase in the conservation of these environments as well as adequate legislative and management responses aimed at sustainability has not yet followed. This book demonstrates that through scientific approaches to understanding and managing tourist interactions with marine wildlife, sustainable marine tourism can be achieved. Drawing from disciplines such as marine and conservation biology and behavioural ecology, the effects of human disturbance on marine wildlife as well as management approaches to moderate these impacts are explored. Social science perspectives are also used to understand consumer demand and the ethical and legislative problems that this demand creates. This comprehensive volume provides valuable insights for both researchers and practitioners in marine conservation and tourism.

Michael Luck is Associate Professor and Head of Department (Tourism and Events) in the School of Hospitality and Tourism, and Associate Director for the coastal and marine tourism research programme area at the New Zealand Tourism Research Institute, both at the Auckland University of Technology. He received his PhD from the University of Otago in Dunedin. Michael has more than ten years' work experience in the tourism industry and has taught at universities in Germany, New Zealand, Scotland, and Canada. Michael's research interests lie in the areas of ecotourism, sustainable tourism, the impacts of tourism, marine tourism, and aviation. He is co-chair of the International Coastal & Marine Tourism Society, has published in a number of international journals, is founding editor-in-chief of the academic journal Tourism in Marine Environments, and Associate Editor of the Journal of Ecotourism. Michael edited or co-edited two volumes on ecotourism, two on marine tourism, two on polar tourism, one each on events management and low cost airlines, and the Encyclopedia of Tourism and Recreation in Marine Environments (CABI).
