The principal aim of this exploratory study is to develop and test the initial stages of a framework to assess the sustainability of marine wildlife tourism operations in Western Australia. In particular, this study uses the available research as a guide to understanding ecological, environmental, operational and social impacts of marine wildlife tourism on both marine wildlife and humans and subsequently develops a wildlife-auditing framework.
