This system have been successful in Central America focusing on utilizing woody perennial plants in pastures to improve cattle nutrition in dry season and help mitigate damage of overgrazing delicate grasses (Ibrahim et al., 2001). Economically, silvopastoral systems provide additional income in hard seasons for livestock farmers. Silvopastoral systems are more economically safe as the trees provide shade and improve soils for pastures, and when the animal prices drop, they are able to use their trees for timber (Camargo et al., 2005). Another type of agroforestry is live fences, which are fences of planted trees that divide pasture. Live fences have multiple benefits for both the farmer and the ecosystem: fodder for cattle, firewood, fruit, provide habitat for wild animals and connect wooded areas separated by agriculture (Harvey et al., 2005).
The green strategies initiated in the visitation to natural setting minimize degradation of the ecosystem; thus, increasing returns from tourism. The trends, in turn, can inspire stakeholders to preserve resources that benefit all. Ecological tourism also encourages less damaging ventures for profit such as bird watching, which, in turn, makes it easier encouraging conservation as the incentive to help minimize exploitation of the natural resources. The tourism also creates a platform for exchanging knowledge on preservation activities and such makes ecological conservation easier. Another way in which the tourism can benefit the people is that it facilitates utilization of returns of tourism equally thus spurring economic growth.

But today there are still many farmers who choose integrate crop and livestock enterprises. There are also local specialized crop and livestock farmers who work together and integrate their farms in order to receive some of the benefits of crop and livestock integration. There are four main benefits of integrating crop and livestock systems: “(I) Crops produced on the farm can be used to feed livestock; (II) livestock manure can serve as the primary source of nutrients for crop production, thereby cycling nutrients from the crops through the animals and back out onto the land; (III) livestock can serve as the sink for agricultural byproducts; and (IV) ruminant livestock encourage the establishment of perennial grass and legume forages as a primary feedstuff.” (Sulc, R. Mark, and Benjamin F. Tracy) There are many reasons to integrate crop and livestock enterprises. One of the most common reasons to integrate these crop and livestock enterprises is to stabilize economic returns and farm income. Integration of crop and livestock enterprises help farmers manage risk.

Additionally, the increasing use of social media amongst consumers allows the accesses to a variety of resources about their food, which may or may not be proven true. However, because of this wide gap between farmers and consumers, consumers cannot distinguish the truth from the myths. By providing educational resources, the future of the food industry has an exciting opportunity to increase food and agriculture knowledge. Through the work of programs such as Farm to Table movements, Ag in the Classroom and utilizing social media positively with hashtags like #RealPigFarming, the opportunities are endless. In today’s age, consumers demand knowledge on where their food comes from and it is up to the next generation of agriculturalists to guide the consumers in the right direction and provide ample resources.
In this respect, the present and future generations are urged to conserve the environment while the Government is committed to strengthening and enforcing anti-poaching and nature based conservation policies which will ensure the development of responsible tourism in the country. It should be noted, however, that eco-tourists prefer the use of local resources and expertise which in turn translates into import savings. The use of local resources and expertise also translates into environmentally sensitive patterns and local participation in the travel industry. Its emphasis on local resources and employment makes it attractive to developing countries, which though rich in natural resources are disadvantaged by rural poverty and lack of export earnings. The value of biodiversity is more widely appreciated in the whole world.
Tourism has become a huge source of revenue and cultural exchange for many parts of the developing and developed world. Through tourism people are able to escape their normal routine and interact with exotic and different places, as well as people. This act of traveling for the sake of pleasure and "vacation" sometimes leads tourists astray in their ethical judgment of how to act as a visitor in a different land. This paper will dive deeper into this issue by comparing the "tourist" through the sexualized tourism market in Brazil and more ethical forms of alternative tourism, such as volunteer tourism. The act of touring has been done for hundreds of years but has morphed into a more lucrative, dangerous industry as travel has become more accessible to a wide spectrum of people.
