National Parks: Yorkshire Dales - A Case Study

Synopsis
Examines the concept of a national park, using the Yorkshire Dales National Park as a study example. Discusses tourism, conservation, the local economy and implications for the future. With six million visitors each year, park management can conflict with tourism. Areas of great scenic beauty are at risk from millions of walkers. Traffic congestion, car parking problems, air pollution and litter threaten the park environment. Park managers discuss how to balance conservation with recreation and demonstrate sustainable park use.
