From the Paper:

"Dragon tourism is a local form of "ecotourism" at Komodo National Park in Indonesia, home to the endangered Komodo "Dragon" the largest lizard in the world. (Walpole and Goodwin, 2000, pp. 560-561) Ecotourism tries to protect the local environment by making that environment the basis of small-scale tourism and the local economy. The question is do the locals benefit from ecotourism? (Walpole and Goodwin, 2000, p. 567) One reason they do not is "leakage" where locals, lacking the necessary skills or capitol, lose potential income to outsiders - often from urban or "core" areas. (Walpole and Goodwin, 2000, p. 570-571)"
