A report of a study investigating the potential and/or actual conflict between recreation and tourism and nature conservancy. The study had three components: a general appraisal and literature review; a broad reconnaissance of five study areas; and, discussions with officers in a wide range of government agencies and non-governmental bodies. It was concluded that there is little firm evidence about the interactions of tourism and conservation and that tourism is not generally perceived as a major problem for nature conservancy except in relatively few localittes. Most problems could be solved by better management.
