In this article Azarya discuss about the effects which were brought by globalization to international tourism that related to local culture and local economy.

The article is useful to my presentation because Azarya give some examples of most of wild animals and local people suffered negative influences from tourists.

This article give lots of information about tourism industry in developing countries which help me not only focus on local economy but also on local culture and wild animals.
