      >and environmentally responsible tourism. That's why we send on-site

      >and unspoiled," said Keith Bellows, editor of National Geographic
      >Traveler. "These finalists understand that the people who live in a
      >place must benefit from tourism that takes place there. That way,
      >residents will seek to protect what tourists are coming for. We want
      >today's tourism to leave a proud legacy for future generations: a
      >world full of destinations that are still worth visiting."
