Rethinking Park Protection: Treading the Uncommon Ground of Environmental Beliefs
- Lapage, William
- CABI Publishing
In today's society it can be hidden beliefs that guide the management of parks, treating them as natural resources rather than national assets. These current management approaches often lead to deferred maintenance on park infrastructure, causing inadequate protection from vandalism, poaching, and theft of artefacts. A sad demise, often due to an out-dated belief that parks are non-essential leisure services rather than necessities for a vibrant modern life. This book aims to dispel the lethargy of the parks profession, by challenging readers to reconsider their beliefs about parks and their purpose in modern life. It is suitable for environmental management professionals, policy makers and anyone with an interest in parks and parkland recreation. It is also suitable for students of public policy and environmental studies.
