Tourism has positive and negative effects on the environment and the socio-cultural fabric. It can provide employment, motivate reservation of wild land and repair of damaged environments, but can also cause permanent environmental damage through scenery mining and disrupt local societies and cultures through place piracy. Tasmania is increasingly suffering from scenery mining and place piracy to the degree that qualities that attract tourists are threatened. An increasing lack of control on developments and tourist numbers needs to be reversed if Tasmania is to avoid the fate of overtourism.
