In the future, when climate change will force a radical rethink of the concept of ecological sustainability, tourism researchers will be forced to consider how sustainability of natural resources and the sustainability of the tourism industry are linked, with the latter having a high degree of dependency on the former. This paper seeks to draw both aspects of sustainability together and consider how the sustainability of protected areas and the tourism industry will be affected by climate change in the near to long-term future. In this paper, considerations about biological sustainability are limited to protected areas that are used as a key selling point by tourism destinations.
