|Abstract:||Tourism based on the viewing of great apes is increasingly promoted as a means of generating revenue for range states, local communities, and the private sector (e.g. GRASP, 2006 ). This is despite known risks from tourism, including disease transmission, which have caused concern among conservationists and prompted the International Union for Conservation of Nature to publish guidelines on best practices for great ape tourism (Macfi e & Williamson, 2010 ). IUCN is one of the world's most respected authorities on species conservation, and brings together governments, UN agencies, and NGOs to conserve biodiversity and to ensure that any use of natural resources is equitable and ecologically sustainable.|
