Traditional village forest landscapes: Tourists' attitudes and preferences for conservation
Yuei Nakama and
Tourism Management, 2017, vol. 59, issue C, 652-662
This study examines a traditional village tree landscape on the Ryukyu Islands that provides tourists with an integrated experience of local culture, history, and nature. Using data derived from a sample of 417 respondents collected over a two-year period, it found that respondents under 40 years of age, or who were travelling with their family, were likely to give more to the tree landscape conservation fund, while respondents with a higher household income or higher education level tended not to donate more to the conservation of the village tree landscape. This study suggests that requests for a donation or entrance ticket can be used to collect conservation funds for natural resources.
