dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this report is to examine visitor management techniques, their use throughout history and their impact to date. The impact of visitor management techniques specifically on protected areas and national parks will be examined through the overview of case studies looking at Australia, The Great Barrier Reef, and Antarctica. The studies show that techniques like planning, provision of facilities, site hardening, and education were all effective management techniques in reducing visitor impacts. These findings are important in reinforcing management efforts currently and providing a starting point for management in the future to tackle the problems of environmental sustainability and visitor satisfaction.en_US
