Level 1 Eyesore Level 2 new hotels may destroy the natural view Level 3 large buildings may be an eyesore destroying the beauty of the area permanently.
Level 1 Water pollution Level 2 sewage from hotels might pollute the water Level 3 lots of sewage from new hotels may leak into the water killing fish and coral reefs. Can you do the same for “building large hotels” ?
Large scale development – impacts - natural environment The vegetation will be cleared in order to build tourist facilities such as hotels which will destroy the wildlife habitats and the food supply. This reduce the number of wildlife such as birds to the area as they will migrate to another area. Tourists may drop litter on the beach which will make it look ugly but also could affect wildlife as animals may try and feed eat it and it may get stuck inside them such as plastics and metal and kill them or poison them such as batteries. The sewage caused by a large amount of tourists may be pumped into the sea which will pollute the water and damage the marine ecosystem by poisoning fish. Large buildings may be an eye sore and damage the natural beauty of the area. They damage coral reefs by walking on them and breaking bits off for souvenirs which kills the coral and decreases the ecosystem it supports. Demand for water will increase so it will drain the natural environment which will decease the amount of lush vegetation supporting the wildlife ecosystem.
