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.

In this study, we sought to evaluate: a) the range of activities undertaken by visitors to aquatic ecosystems and the likely ecological consequences of those activities, and b) the sensitivity and scale of response of existing aquatic indicators. By combining these two evaluations, we collated a list of aquatic indicators that might be responsive to the spatial and temporal disturbances associated with visitor activities in particular, and as such, might show considerable promise in being further developed and implemented in monitoring and assessment programs within protected areas.

Consumer Demand for responsible Travel

A variety of market studies in recent years have documented sustained interest among consumers in tourism products and services that protect the environment and respect local cultures.

Experts say…

  • “Concern about sustainability and the planet is top of mind for everybody… [O]ver 98% of consumers in every market worldwide view themselves as environmentalists.” —James Canton, CEO, Institute for Global Futures, San Francisco.
  • Environmental concern is “the biggest social trend for the rest of our careers.” —Daniel Levine, Executive Director, Avant-Guide Institute, New York.
  • “Green is no longer just a trend. It’s a way of life.” —Fran Brasseux, Executive Director, HSMAI (Hotel Sales and Marketing Association International)Foundation

Surveys and Statistics show…

  • A 2013 Travel Guard survey of travel agents concluded “green travel is here to stay.” The survey found “24% of those who responded noted that interest in green travel is currently the highest it’s ever been in the last 10 years, and 51% reported that interest has remained constant throughout this time period.” By CREST.
