Ecotourism and Sustainability

Please read this before starting the questionnaire. Firstly, thank you for taking an interest in this questionnaire. Before you start there is some information you should know: This questionnaire is part of a dissertation based around ecotourism in the Northern Territory of Australia and the effects it has on sustainability. Your contribution is important as by drawing on your own experiences and knowledge, this will make it possible for the researcher to identify, clarify and prioritise the demands placed on the sustainability of ecotourism in the Australian Northern Territory. This will help the researcher to gain an understanding of people’s knowledge of the subject area and help towards further research to promote sustainable practices in the area. The questionnaire can be completed entirely online which means there is no need for extra expense for stamps, posting forms or running up telephone bills. The questionnaire will end at various points depending on your answer. There are no wrong answers. All completed questionnaires will be greatly received. All responses will be anonymous and no further contact will be required in relation to the questionnaire. However, if you would like to talk about it more, then a meeting can be set up for you to elaborate more on ideas. This can be done in person, via email or telephone. So please take a short break out of your day to fill this in and provide the researcher with many helpful and interesting views and perspectives.
