Předběžná náplň práce
We estimate the willingness to pay for shark ecotourism in Costa Rica. A discrete choice experiment was used to elicit the preferences for various attributes of ecological components of marine tourism (preservation of coral reefs, conservation of sea turtles and sharks, and costs) and tourism infrastructure (city and beach) in Costa Rica. A contingent valuation exercise (double-bounded dichotomous choice) was used to elicit tourists’ preferences towards three threatened hammerhead species present in Costa Rican waters. The main survey was carried out in August and September 2016 at the departure gate at the San Jose airport (the largest entry point of tourists). Over 800 respondents were interviewed using in-person surveys. We find that tourists were willing to pay more for tourism infrastructure. WTP was higher for sharks than sea turtles and coral reefs (not statistically different from zero).
