The purpose of Promoting Persuasion in Protected Areas is to help protected area managers make better decisions and to achieve greater success in their use of communication to influence visitor behaviour. Many managers, and some tourism operators, see this as an important part of their job. While others can learn and apply the approach outlined in this manual, and while the methods can be adapted for influencing many different kinds of behaviours, this manual is written for protected area managers who want to influence the behaviour of people who visit their sites.

This project explicitly focuses on indicators for measuring the sustainability of visitor use, rather than the much broader suite of indicators needed to report comprehensively on protected area management. Also, the STCRC requested that the indicators be developed for potential inclusion in the Earthcheck TM benchmarking system.

The research objective of the present project was to determine the relative impacts of disposal of human wastes on vegetation and soils in Tasmanian vegetation types that occur in areas used for wild country camping, with particular emphasis on the impact of digging, the impact of nutrient accessions, the persistence of  paper products, such as tissues, and the disturbance of burials by native animals.

The objectives of the study were to provide the foundation for the development of an industry-led set of national benchmarks for operational management of caravan and tourist park sites; a set of national visitor service quality benchmarks; a set of national protocols for ongoing performance management; and a decentralised knowledge management process whereby the practices, protocols and benefits of the project will be dispersed throughout rural and regional Australia. The achievement of these objectives provides a basis for improving the quality of service provision to caravan and tourist park customers and the management performance of caravan and tourist park operations.
