Abstract: This Paper will analyse current tourist trends in Vancouver to gain some scope of ecotourism in the city. From here, I will evaluate methods of managing tourists in the park and suggest some key changes that need to be made in park management etiquette. To define ecotourism briefly, it is the sustainable consumption of natural areas involving an educative and conservation-supporting component while overlapping characteristics of wildlife, adventure and nature-based tourism, rather than large-scale tourism (Hill and Gough, 2009). Defining an ecotourist is slightly more complex as the definition has changed throughout the past 20 years. These definitions will be evaluated under the social profiling portion of this paper.
