Description: In the 1980s, alarm began to spread about habitat loss, especially in tropical forests that supported a vast number of species. Fast and accelerating clearing over the previous two decades had reduced, isolated and degraded this habitat type. Conservation proponents reacted by buying and protecting forest tracts; however, political will and funds were often insufficient to support viable plant and animal populations, to protect representative forest communities, or even to prevent the neighboring human populations from illicitly using resources in protected tracts. Ecotourism developed, in part, as a complement to these conventional conservation methods.
