Abstract

Tourism is currently the world’s largest industry and ecotourism is its fastest growing sector and ecotour companies frequently advertise that their tours offer close encounters with wild animals.

How provisioning affects female care of dependent Offspring is critical, given that provisioning affects not only female diet, but potentially activity budgets, ranging and patterns of association.
