About me

Who am I?

I guess I should introduce myself! I'm Scott - a geograpy-obsessed kind-of-guy studying geography (no surprise!) at the University of Exeter. My big interest is in the field of sustainability and therefore I have a broad understanding of both human and physical geography. Of course, as geography is "all about colouring in", I am passionate about art too. I excelled in these two particular A Levels, but also achieved a full house of A*s at GCSE so can really help out with anything.

I seriously considered pursuing Architecture at university up until the very last minute so I can provide help and feedback with portfolios too.

In my free time I love photography, music, scuba diving, volunteering and so much more! I am a friendly person and would love to have a chat to find out what you need a helping hand with, and will try my best to adapt my teaching styles to benefit you as much as possible.

Questions Scott has answered

Outline the positive and negative effects that tourism can have on fragile environments

A great way of approaching this question is by applying a case study such as tourism in Antartica. Geographers argue that Antartica is the only wilderness left in the world - that is to say that it remains largely untouched by humans. Tourists bring both positive and negative effects to the environment.

Possible negative impacts:
- Antarctica is often described as a ‘honeypot’ (imagine bees swarming around honey to taste the sweet experience). This suggests that a vast number of tourists visit the area every year. Tourists arrive by plane or boat which creates a large amount of pollution. This transport pollution can be more damaging on a global scale, although sound pollution, litter and effluence are more degrading on a local scale.
- Tourists may distress particular species that have never been exposed to humans before.

Possible positive impacts:
- Tourists should see first hand the beauty of Antarctica which needs to be preserved. Hopefully, they will donate money to charities who support this philosophy which will aid the wildlife. These visitors may also raise awareness to others, so the wider world will realise how fragile it is and help protect it.

You might insert an evaluative statement at the end to show which impacts you think are more significant.
