    Abstract

    This study draws together current practice for visitor monitoring in protected areas from around Australia and New Zealand, and builds on the existing ANZECC standards. Guiding principles were developed from relevant literature and input from protected area agencies. The guiding principles can be used to assist protected area managers in achieving best practice in the collection, storage and application of visitor monitoring data. To help develop and illustrate the guiding principles relevant case study examples were sought from all protected area agencies in Australia and New Zealand.

    The guiding principles are listed below according to whether they are applicable to visitor monitoring systems, data collection, data storage or data application. The five guiding principles for monitoring systems are relatively broad and as such also have applicability to the individual system elements of data collection, storage and application.
