Abstract

The future of parks is as much a political and social outcome as it is an ecological one. Political success, particularly where the resources are in public ownership, as is the case with many of the world’s parks, depends on public support. Such support is increasingly based on being able to show value for money and the accrual of benefits to the public. Being able to report on the successes (and failures) of visitor management is part of this accountability.
