At the moment several types of ecotourism are actively developing: cognitive, specific (acquaintance with some kind of animals, plants, etc.), and specialized tourism (photo and film tours, children's eco-camps, rural tourism).

At the same time, the total number of ecotourists since 2011 has increased by 50%. Specially protected natural territories occupy 15% of the country's territory.
