      Balancing Tourism and Conservation: Choices, Responsibilities and
      Practices

      An Invitation to the
      1999 INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON
      COASTAL AND MARINE TOURISM

      April 26-29, 1999
      Westin Bayshore Hotel
      Vancouver, British Columbia
      CANADA

      The time has never been more critical for assessing, addressing and
      acting on the myriad of issues and opportunities that relate to the
      global growth of coastal and marine tourism, and the goal of
      achieving sustainability--environmentally, culturally,and
      economically.

      This important four-day symposium brings together an international
      think-tank of expertise and perspectives from industry, government
      and academia to explore and encourage innovative approaches for the
      future. Participants will be actively involved in provocative
      interactive sessions directed at specific facets of the fragile
      balance between tourism and the environment, and determining the
      outcomes for action:

      *Sustainability--rethinking the vital relationship between
      conservation, preservation and profit
      *Business opportunities--planning and developing for the "soft
      adventure" client
      *Integrated management and governance--building understanding that
      preserves the environment while also enhancing economic viability

      In addition to a range of presenters, panelists and concurrent
      sessions, the conference features the April 28th banquet--Listen to
      the Sea by Dr. Joe MacInnis: "How We Raised the Titanic."

      programs. This long-awaited 386-page volume includes manuscripts
      from more than 60 presentations at the Congress. Topics range from
      coastal area carrying capacities and management of fragile
      ecosystems, economics of tourism development, to coastal tourism
      planning techniques, policy making, and interpretive programs. The
      Proceedings are available for order at
