Can local environments survive the ‘Survivor’?

So, my friend Scott Van Pelt, who has been managing a bed and breakfast on Isla Contadora hosted a reporter from the USA a few months back. Scott showed the reporter the destruction left behind by an international film crew shooting a “Survivor” television show. Scott explained to the reporter that we have had similar issues with reality tv shows in Bocas del Toro. The reporter gave me a call. I explained to him about what happened on Bluff Beach last year with El Desafio as well as the problems we have had with other reality tv shows filming throughout the archipelago in the past.

You can take a look for yourselves. What are your thoughts on reality tv shows filming in delicate environments? Should it be allowed at all?
