Visitor Research and Statistics

Research and Research Permits

Applications to conduct visitor research on land administered by the Parks and Wildlife Service can be completed online, or by downloading the PDF below:

Visitor research is an integral part of the management of Tasmania's parks and reserves. Quality research provides valuable insights into visitors' attitudes, behaviour, preferences, expectations and experiences.

There is an increasing level of visitor research being undertaken on lands administered by the Parks and Wildlife Service and it is necessary to ensure visitors are not unduly burdened by requests to participate in social research, and to monitor the research that is undertaken. In order to facilitate the growing number visitor research projects, approval is required for the conduct of any social research on lands administered by the Parks and Wildlife Service.

A Proposal to conduct social research on land administered by the Parks and Wildlife Service form must be completed and submitted with any necessary additional information attached.

Relevant Ethics Committee/s must grant approval (eg. University Ethics Committee) prior to the conduct of research. Proposed research must be consistent with or compliment planning processes. Must not conflict, in time and location, with other studies or overburden visitors and/or Parks and Wildlife Service staff.

Further enquiries can be directed to the Visitor Research Officer via our enquiry form.
