Abstract

Tourism is usually regarded as a green ecological economy, but in reality, tourism development will also have negative impacts on the local ecological environment. However, this does not mean that tourism development and ecological environmental protection are antagonistic. Taking the World Natural Heritage Site in Chongqing as an example, this study evaluated the impact of tourism development on the environment based on tourism ecological footprint model. The results show that tourism development does have some negative impacts on environmental protection, but at the same time, it also provides more realistic possibilities for heritage protection. It is practical and feasible to realize ecological development through tourism development. By limiting the speed of tourism development and strengthening the ecological compensation of tourist destinations, the ecological protection and tourism development of World Heritage Sites can be unified for a long time. To be specific, the ecological protection and sustainable development of tourism can be realized by limiting the level of tourism development and the number of tourists, guiding tourists to change their consumption, reducing the ecological footprint of tourism, transferring the ecological footprint of tourism, and improving the ecological carrying capacity.
