As a seascape and cultural visual artist, I naturally believe in protecting our environment.

I believe in protecting jobs and economic growth of the area, so not only culture is preserved but the local person also.

One key point in Geotourism is the idea of improving on what already exists. Another key point would be recognizing key resources needing sustainability in an area and developing a way forward to protect those community assets.
