Abstract/Description

This study is to determine if there is a significant difference between the means of factors of willingness to pay for the preservation of Kakadu National Park in Australia. This national park’s preservation was under assessment due to the decision of whether or not to include a conservation zone. If included it would be put into the park and preserved, but if not, the zone will be used for mining. The factors being examined are the individuals behaviors such as if they recycle, visit national parks and recreation areas in the last year, and if they are a part of a conservation organization. This looks to see if a certain factor makes a person more willing than the others.
