Abstract


BOZCAADA’DA EKOTURİZME UYGUN POTANSİYEL ALANLARIN CBS ARACILIĞIYLA BELİRLENMESİ

According to the International Union for Conversation of Nature (IUCN) “ecoturism is environmentally responsible travel and visitation to relatively undisturbed natural areas, in order to enjoy and appreciate nature that promotes conservation, has low visitor impact, and provides for beneficially active socio-economic involvement of local populations.” The natural and cultural richnesses of Turkey provide a good potential for nature tourism types; however, unplanned development of ecoturism activities could disturb natural areas. Therefore, spatial determination of potential areas where ecotourism activities can be carried out has been the subject of this research. The selected study area, Bozcaaada, which is a grade 3rd natural site area, is located in Çanakkale Province. The onset of deterioration of natural areas on the island due to intensive uses in summer months underscores the necessity of planning ecotourism activities considering natural conservation. In this research, the potential areas where ecotourism activities can be carried out are spatially determined via overlaying analyses and evaluations of natural and cultural elements provided by GIS. Spatial recommendations are made for ecotourism activities in the research area.
