    Description

    This paper explores a value specification option to better meet a core information need in protected area management for recreation and conservation. It does not debate the meaning or definition of values, but instead identifies a perspective on values that is aimed at meeting practical conservation management needs. The first part of that perspective involves extracting from the wider values discourse some working pragmatic definition of what ‘Conservation Values’ are. The second involves clarifying how the priority attributes and features of conservation values could be considered management ‘assets.’ Then it describes how the Department of Conservation (DOC) in New Zealand is beginning to implement value-in-place specifications through its Visitor Asset Management System (VAMS). Future directions required to advance this implementation further through a wider range of conservation value considerations are discussed.
