In recent years, there has been a growing recognition of the importance of the link between sustainability and entrepreneurship. Wildlife tourism is one area where there is a high degree of involvement of the entrepreneurial sector, and in many instances there is a budding appreciation of the role played by these entrepreneurs towards sustainable tourism.
