This thesis forms the foundation for a conservation education training manual to help guides in Murchison Falls National Park, Uganda, communicate to foreign visitors about conservation issues. For background information I used a combination of text-based research and interviews to examine the application of community conservation and revenue-sharing in the boundary communities around Murchison Falls, the factors that make such programs successful, and the affects of those programs on the attitudes of locals towards the park. I used a visitor questionnaire to measure customer satisfaction, awareness of environmental issues, and attitudes regarding the relationship between local people and the park. After compiling the results, I made recommendations for how the park can improve its guiding and educational efforts as well as potential additional program offerings. Appended are: (1) Visitor Survey Version 1; (2) Visitor Survey Version 2; and (3) Guide Interview Protocol. (Contains 4 charts and 3 tables.) [Master's Thesis, Prescott College.]
