Abstract

Attaining sustainability of wildlife tourism has been a challenge in a world of uncertainty. This is even more so when the world's climate is rapidly changing. Scientific evidence suggests that climate change will continue and escalate into the future. All sectors of the economy, including tourism, will be impacted by climate change. Both the human and environmental systems of tourism will suffer the consequences of climate change. Thus, reducing vulnerability is inevitable if wildlife tourism is to grow sustainably.
