Tourism in the Yorkshire Dales
We learned how tourism affects the Yorkshire Dales and that only 1900 people live in the Yorkshire Dales compared to the 8 million who visit every year. We learned the ways in which the people within the Yorkshire Dales sustain the landscape and the natural habitat of the wildlife. The people in charge of the YDNP need to consider different factors and work on them.
