Thanks Ron for the interesting link about the potential negative impacts of long-term migrants on their new host city.

However for any surrounding rural areas with ecotourism ventures the "snowbirds" and other short and long-term expats - including aid workers mentioned by ECOT_Julia, English teachers, and those with a local partner or spouse (a considerable group in Mexico for example) - form an interesting niche market for ecotourism that could be targeted by advertising in places where this group is likely to see it
