We have selected Amazon Interactive as the world's very best website on the River Amazon.
The Amazon Interactive website is produced by interactive media company Eduweb of St.Paul, Minnesota, USA. Eduweb is a developer of online learning experiences for museums and school teaching, in art, history and science.
The Amazon Interactive website is based on field research into indigenous ecotourism in the Ecuadorian Amazon. It is intended to show the physical and human geography of the Amazon as well as indicating the risks and benefits of ecotourism as a development strategy.
The website is organized into the following main sections: Where is the Amazon? How Rainy is the Rainforest? Who Lives There? Making a Living, and Conservation & Coffee. There is also an Ecotourism Simulation Game, which enables users to plan and manage a locally controlled ecotourism project. The challenge is to make ecotourism sustainable.
