Abstract (in English)

This article explores an issue of increasing relevance to protected area management, the identification of social value and the incorporation of such values into protected area management strategies. Fundamental to this is an understanding of the beleaguered concepts of "community" and "community value" or "social value". The cultural attachment of people to landscapes or places is discussed with a view to leading protected area managers to a recognition of cultural (social) value which may be summarised as: * Acceptance that it is a base level responsibility of protected area management agencies in Australia to recognise and conserve all heritage values (i.e. both cultural and natural) in a particular landscape (or seascape). * Recognition that cultural heritage values include the social attachment of people to landscapes, landscape elements and associated cultural practice. * Extension of the existing practice of documenting, researching and auditing the nature, range and conservation status of natural heritage to achieve a similar level of knowledge and status of cultural heritage. * Acceptance that sound and equitable conservation outcomes rely not only on educating the public but also in learning from them, particularly in relation to cultural heritage values and the nature of attachment to landscape.
