Title of Project:

TBD

Research Project Description:

All-Terrain Vehicles (ATVs) are increasingly being used in New Brunswick for recreational and utilitarian activities. Despite the province hosting an elaborate network of ATV trails, the activity been subject to conflict due in part to its ecological impacts on the province’s coastal dune and wetland systems. The goal of my project is to use human dimensions of resource management approaches to understand the attitudes, values, and behaviours of ATVers in northeastern New Brunswick to improve management of both natural resources and outdoor recreational activities. I am also interested in incorporating GIS tools to better understand the behavioural characteristics of ATVers.
