Effects of Great Barrier Reef degradation on recreational reef-trip demand: a contingent behaviour approach

Effects of Great Barrier Reef degradation on recreational reef-trip demand: a contingent behaviour approach

Primary Country: Australia
Ecosystem: coral reef
Sample Value Estimates:
  1. A$103 million/ year [US$92.7million]: Hypothetical decrease in annual tourism expenditure for Cairns management area, given 80% decrease in divers/snorkellers due to decreased biodiversity,
  2. A$103 million / year: Annual decrease in tourism expenditure by divers and snokellers on full-day reef trips to Cairns management area of the Great Barrier Reef given a hypothetical 80% decrease in coral and fish biodiversity,
  3. A$185 / trip: CS of reef visitors derive from a diving or snorkelling trip/ per trip ,
  4. A$185/trip [US$186.9]: CS of current reef visitors per diving or snorkelling trip at the Great Barrier Reef
Region: Australia / Northeastern
Data source: MESP Primary
