Abstract: The primary goal of protected areas is biodiversity conservation (Watson, Dudley & Segan, 2014). To reach national and international conservation targets, protected areas are demarcated and maintained throughout the world. The establishment and maintenance of such areas are not without conflict, ranging from buying land for conservation purposes to loss of economic opportunities for food or wood production (McCarthy et al., 2012; Ruslandi & Putz, 2011; Venter, Magrach, Outram, Klein, Marco & Watson, 2018). Protected areas, however, are not just the site of biological diversity – they also have great cultural value and appeal.
