Natural Resources, Recreation, and Sustainable Tourism
Hans G. Vogelsong
My interests focus on assisting communities to understand tourism choice behavior, and what are important features of their regions in attracting tourism. Also, I attempt to help communities understand the importance that tourism has in supporting their local economies and the impacts that different changes/management alternatives to natural resources may have on their economies.
Dr. Vogelsong has over 10 years of experience researching various facets of outdoor recreation participation and management. Although his most recent projects have centered around social-psychological aspects of coastal and estuarine recreation and tourism, Dr. Vogelsong has directed projects concentrating on a diverse array of applied recreation-related subjects including user conflicts, carrying capacity, human dimensions of resource management, economic impacts, use patterns, satisfaction, user preferences for management alternatives, recreation choice behavior, and minimizing depreciative behavior. His clients include the National Park Service, State of North Carolina, State of Delaware, US Fish and Wildlife Service, NOAA, and several nonprofit agencies.
