Scoping study of Victorian national parks as sites to communicate climate change

Each year there are millions of visitors to National Parks in Australia. Such parks present a neglected opportunity to engage not only with large audiences who are open to thinking more about climate change through their contact with these sites. The following report is a pilot analysis of the ten most visited National Parks in Victoria and their potential for acting as sites to communicate climate change. It looks at the impacts of climate change on these parks and the trust visitors have in rangers and park managers as science communicators. It looks at what visual and written materials these parks provide to explain these changes, and which parks are not currently explaining these impacts to visitors.
