Potential for increased engagement in nature conservation

Australian adults were asked to indicate whether they could be encouraged to become involved or more involved in nature conservation activities. Nearly three quarters of Australian adults (74%) indicated they could not be encouraged to become more involved in nature conservation activities (Table 10).

An estimated 4.5 million Australian adults (26%) could be encouraged to become more involved in nature conservation activities. Of these, an estimated 2.5 million indicated having more free time could encourage them to become more involved. Other motivators included: more information or advertising on environmental issues (10%); more environmental events in their local area (9%); seeing the direct benefits of personal efforts (7%); an increase in government rebates and incentives (6%); and having more money to contribute (6%) (Table 10).
