New publication on wildlife tourism, economics and conservation

Emeritus Professor Clem Tisdell was one of our keynote speakers at the national wildlife tourism workshop held a Currumbin Wildlife sanctuary last year. He has now published a paper on the topic on which he spoke at our workshop:

Tisdell, C. 2012. Economic benefits, conservation and wildlife tourism. Acta Turistica 4:127-148

Part of the abstract reads:

“A way of maximising the economic contribution of nature-based tourism to regional and local communities is outlined. Several factors are identified that result in wildlife tourism contributing to nature conservation. This is followed by a discussion of the diversity of stake-holders in nature-based tourism and the economic challenges facing them.”
