Jeju Island welcomes more than a million tourists to its beaches, resorts and UNESCO Natural World Heritage sites every month. The number has grown dramatically every year, from 5 million in 2005 to more than 12 million last year, driven by the economic confidence of a powerful domestic middle class and the package tours of China's nouveaux riche. The effect of the increase in visitors on the environmental and social stability of this island of 500,000 is dramatic and ongoing. Ann Bush is a writer, teacher and activist from Berkley, California. Her work for The Jeju Weekly magazine has brought an articulate and insightful outsider’s take on the art, history and culture of the island. In this interview she discusses the value and dangers of tourism's economic benefits and the sanctity of cultural solidarity in the face of massive change.

According to the World Travel and Tourism Council, travel and tourism is projected to remain one of the world's biggest industries, generating more than $3.5 trillion in economic activity annually. Ecotourism is one of the most rapidly growing and dynamic sectors of the tourism market. The Ecotourism Society defines ecotourism as "responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment and sustains the well-being of local people."
Adam Roberts ‘The Compassionate Conservationist’, CEO of Born Free USA and the Born Free Foundation, chats with Big Blend Radio hosts Nancy J. Reid & Lisa D. Smith, about how Eco-Tourism can benefit communities and travel destinations, and the significant role it plays in wildlife conservation. Born Free USA is a global leader in animal welfare and wildlife conservation. Through litigation, legislation and public education, Born Free USA leads vital campaigns against animals in entertainment, exotic “pets,” trapping and fur, and the destructive international wildlife trade.

Join us Tuesday night May 19, 2015 at 9pm eastern as we present, "Recent Virginia Sightings". In the last few years some interesting sighting reports have come in from Virginia. One thing that makes these particular sightings interesting is the location, timing and area of these sightings. Do these creatures use the nighttime to their advantage to move from one area to another? Or are folks simply misidentifying known wildlife? There are three recent sightings in particular that we will discuss. Key features of these three sightings are the nearby corridors available to move from one area to another. Pipeline easements, power line easements, etc. Is there something to this? Join us for this discussion and please feel free to call in with your opinions and ideas. The show call in number is 347-237-5070.
