Abstract

This paper gives voice to the perspectives and values of stakeholders located in and around one site of controversy, Gladstone Harbour, in the southern section of the GBR World Heritage Area. The findings show that local views act to reinforce the global environmental protection narrative which underpins the World Heritage (WH) system. It concludes thatlocal and global values collide and that overlooking the perspectives of users has potential deleterious consequences for WH marine site
