Case study: “Monetary valuation of ecosystem goods and services in Thousand Islands National Park”

Case Study

The Thousand Islands National Park, located within the larger Thousand Islands Ecosystem in Eastern Ontario, was selected as a case study for valuing ecosystem goods and services (EGS). The case study brings together concepts showing how ecosystem accounting can be used. The park, established in 1904, is one of the smallest national parks in Canada at 22.3 km2, and faces many pressures affecting the state of its environment.
