Abstract

[Extract] The need to develop a comprehensive understanding of the role that protected areas play in the lives of communities is as important as developing a greater understanding of the scientific aspects of protected areas. The aim of the research reported here was to monitor the attitudes, perceptions, knowledge and use of the Wet Tropics of Queensland World Heritage Area (WTQWHA) by residents of the Wet Tropics bioregion. The research builds on previous community attitude surveys that have been undertaken for the Wet Tropics Management Authority (WTMA).
