[Extract] Many operators working in the field of wildlife tourism - be they tour guides, zoo-keepers or eco-accommodation managers - have a demonstrable interest in the natural history, ecology, behaviour and conservation of wildlife. They are also often very well situated to collect data, as they either live or work in areas rich in biodiversity or harbouring particular species of interest. Some have scientific backgrounds, and others are enthusiastic, self-taught naturalists who are happy to work with scientists or to be trained in the essentials of data collection, whether for research publication or monitoring for conservation management, improved husbandry practices or enhancement of nature interpretation. Working in partnership with other operators, as well as scientists and educators, they have the potential to contribute substantially to scientific research, education and conservation.
