Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0473193868, Paperback)Become an Organic Explorer Third edition of this tourism guidebook with a difference! New Zealand's foremost eco-tourism book Organic Explorer (3rd edition) takes you behind the 'clean-green-speak' to discover wilderness experiences that most New Zealanders and travellers to our shores only dream about. Experience astronomy voyages though New Zealand's darkest night skies; fly fish South Island rivers with entertainer Lynda Topp; discover a high country retreat on Te Kooti's trail; experience luxury off-grid eco lodges and delicious regional gourmet food and wine. Encounter our unique and endangered birdlife, and enjoy cycling, trekking and health spa retreats. Unlike other guidebooks this edition of Organic Explorer doesn't gloss over the increasingly sombre environmental realities of this beautiful country. It takes a critical look at the rivers and lakes, beaches, forests and wildlife that are so important to our $18.6 billion tourism industry. It asks how tourism is coping in the context of dirty farming practices, wilderness mining, logging and deep sea oil exploration and what needs to be done to preserve and sustain the uniqueness that visitors spend thousands of dollars to come and see. It also situates the New Zealand tourism industry in its global market context, showing how our foreign and trade policies are opening up New Zealand "resources" to further exploitation by international capitalists who don't give a damn about our environment. Organic Explorer immerses the reader in all of this and more - offering a guide to how to find the very best New Zealand has to offer - the extraordinary places that make this country so wonderful to live in, and that many tourism operators are willing to share and, best of all, protect.
