Cavendish Beach in Prince Edward Island National Park is characterized by red sandstone cliffs and cascading sand dunes. Tourism is heavy between June-September, as visitors want to explore the area, swim, sunbathe and relax. Dune systems are in close proximity to where tourists flock on the beach making the dunes susceptible to human interference such as walking and running up and down the dune systems. Human footsteps can uproot and destroy marram grass that is growing on dune systems, making it difficult for sand particles to build up and continue to build the dune systems along the coast. The Prince Edward Island National Park has conservation measures in place to help protect dunes form human traffic such as boardwalks, signs and various fences. This study will examine different social perceptions of various conservation strategies used at Cavendish beach by Prince Edward Island National park according to gender, age, and local versus out-out-province visitors. The results of this study will allow Prince Edward Island National park to re-evaluate what conservation measures are working and if they can be changed for future protection of Cavendish sand dunes. This study will also suggest recommendations for future conservation of the Cavendish beach area through various educational tools directed towards the preservation of Cavendish sand dune systems for future generations.
