Bunaken National Marine Park was designated as a National Park in 1991 by the Minister of for the purpose of preserving it toward the disastrous and irresponsible act of human being. Prior to this, a group of divers in 1975, had discovered this beautiful undersea garden and had started to invite guests and tourists to come and visit it. Recently, the growing number of tourist’s arrival to the park in the last five years have provided significant impacts to the local economy. Charter flights from China with a 200 seats available have created new markets for this park. However, this positive growth is also accompanied by the negative impacts of tourism to the environment, the local culture and the language of the community. The latest development in the local language, for example, has been critical. Due to the increase use of foreign language, the local language has almost lost its significance. The gradual decline in the use of local language will threaten the existence of the language. The local community is entitled to pass the language through oral and written expression and the decrease use of the local language in the current communication is significant. The research with eco linguistic approach was conducted in Bunaken National Park aimed at providing exotic and appealing fish inventory for tourists. A qualitative and quantitative research are employed to collect data using a set of closed and open questions to potential tourists in Bunaken National Marine Park. The answers are analyzed using tabular form.
