Abstract:
This study was intended to demonstrate that people are willing to pay to secure the option of future use of natural area. The relevant values were captured using Contingent Valuation Method where a total of 209 on-site visitors that were randomly selected for the study. Results indicated that the conservation value of Fraser`s Hill ranges between RM33 and RM45 per visitor. The study implies that the protection of natural resources is essential in terms of various values in particular the non-use value that should be considered in policy making associated with development of the resources. Priority should be given on promoting the appreciation of these assets, rather than developing artificial alternatives.
