dc.description.abstract This report assesses the bio-physical and socio economic impacts associated with tourism to Marion Island. Marion Island is the largest of two islands in the South African Prince Edward Islands group, which lies in the Southern Ocean about 1700 km from the South African coast. (See Figures 1 & 2). On the basis of this assessment, recommendations are made on how to avoid or mitigate negative impacts and optimise positive impacts. The report will inform the decision ofthc Director-General ofthe Department of Environmental Affairs and Tourism (DEA&T) whether and under what conditions tourism to the Prince Edwards Islands will be allowed. If necessary, the report will be used in the development of a policy for tourism at the Prince Edward Islands for incorporation into the existing management plan for the islands. en_ZA
