Exploring National Parks: Balancing Act Behind Beauty Of Potatso

How do you preserve nature’s bounty, but still let people appreciate it up close? The problem grows even more complicated when you add in local people who have spent their lives earning their living off the land.

 

Potatso National Park is a place of breathtaking beauty, but it was forced to close off a section of the park for the sake of rejuvenation in the face of a tidal wave of tourism. This consequently cut off sources of income for the local residents, creating a tricky balancing act for park management.
