Environmental interpretation is a form of environmental education conducted through tourism. It is also a kind of exchange that integrates environmental education, management and information transmission. It aims to help people understand the natural and cultural characteristics of a region and encourage them to appreciate and act to protect environment and heritage resources, regulate their own behaviour and establish good moral practices and values.
