Slide 17: Types of incentives
This study then assessed what manner of incentives people thought would best persuade landowners to engage in conservation. Top rated amongst the options were monetary recompense, in the form of assistance with fencing and land management, assistance with alien vegetation clearing (which legislation considers the onus of the landowner), and rates relief for land conserved. Grants or subsidies for conservation followed shortly after these. The least popular options included free access to WCNCB parks and discounts at their resorts, as well as advice on the procedure for legal compliance. Community recognition was rated lowest of all options. The remaining options all weighed in at less than 50% popularity, and could be considered should the more popular options not be feasible.
