Ecotourists also have a deleterious effect on hunting as well.

Your post reminded me of a time when I was on Safari in Kenya (God, is that as pretentious as I think it is?), and we were driving along a road towards a group of assorted zebra and wildebeest, and all of a sudden we saw a Lion stalking them. Following the tyranny of the charismatic megafauna, we immediately stopped the truck, to ogle the lion. That drew the attention of all the prey, and they all saw the lion that we were stopped next to. The lion turned and gave us this look that just screamed "Now look what you've done"

His hunt was over.
