What do you think "communities" here mean? "community spirit" or "local community" to be respected? Maybe you might have to read all the passage to find out the meaning, but my feeling was that ecotourists should respect the nature and villagers of such tourist attractions.
4)Ecotourism is responsible travel to natural areasin a way that conserves the environment and improves the well-being of local people. What is ecotourism? It means much more than holidays in popular destinations. You can visit anywhere in the world as an ecotourist by being environmentally more responsible. Ecotourism combines conservation, communities,and travel together. Those who participate in ecotourism should follow these principles. Minimize your travel impact on nature.
