The association of the tourism sector, which has developed all over the world with the globalization process, with the conservation policies and environment centered approaches is a crucial practice in terms of protecting universal values. However, this process has to be integrated with the management and planning policies. Conservation and sustainability principles should be the fundamental strategy of the local actors in the tourism planning for the protection and promotion of social values. In this way, economic development goals may be integrated with the protection policies. This study aims to make visible the necessity of an environment- centered perspective in tourism management and its contribution to sustainable development.
