Introduction

In the framework of the study financed by the EU "Wildlife economy: sustainable tourism in protected areas", we want to understand the impact of COVID-19 on wildlife tourism in protected areas, considering the impact on protected areas, businesses and local communities.  To do so, we have a short set of questions that will allow us to compare the period before the crisis with now, and estimates for the foreseeable future.
 
We also ask about what kind of support might help (relating to the local value chains, and during different phases; conservation; business operations, policy interventions etc.) and on what terms these might work.
 
Your individual responses will be held in confidence, and the results will be collated to motivate EU policy interventions.  The questionnaire should take 20-25 minutes to complete.
 
Kindly complete this form by Friday 24 April 2020
