The relevance of the study of the prospects for preserving the biosystems of the regions through the development of ecological tourism in the Republic of Tajikistan is explained by the importance of preserving the main resource of ecological tourism - the natural environment or its individual components, harmonization of the ecological and economic objectives of tourism development. The purpose of this study is to determine the prospects for the preservation of regional biosystems through the development of ecological tourism in the Republic of Tajikistan. As the results of the study showed, the development of ecological tourism in Tajikistan is promoted by the formation of regional ecological zones covering a large area that have unique natural and recreational resources of interest to foreign tourists. But, despite the availability of opportunities and development prerequisites, ecological tourism in the Republic of Tajikistan is in its infancy. According to expert estimates, the main base for the formation and development of ecological tourism in the republic is the Tajik National Park, which is formed to protect the landscape, rare and endangered species of flora and fauna, nature, culture and history, as well as the development and rationalization of tourism. The study emphasized that along with the positive aspects of the preservation of the region’s biosystem in the Tajik National Park, there are a number of problems that hinder the development of eco-tourism. As a result of the analysis of existing scientific research conducted by the polls, the article suggests ways to solve these problems. The article will be useful for regional and federal authorities, educational institutions that prepare students in the direction of “tourism”, as well as for all those interested in the conservation of biosystems and the development of ecological tourism.
