Project Description

This collaboration examine the relationship between visitation to national parks (both in the U.S. and Victoria) and health and human well-being. Furthermore, we aim to identify populations in each country who are not benefiting from these resources, in an effort to develop strategies for enabling visitation and benefit accruement. This meets the strategic research mission of both Monash and Penn State (PSU) Universities for improving human health and stewarding the planet’s resources. Competitively assessed funding: $20,000 AUD.
