Yes to ecotourism development.

No one in Pangayacu has ever run an ecotourism project before, so everyone is a little nervous about the prospect. An older man named Mariano suggests looking outside the community for expert help. Others say that the only way to make sure that the project benefits the people of the community is through local control and management. What do you think?
