While I am sure many of you are already aware of this, there is also a World Commission on Protected Areas report, commissioned by UNEP, WTO and IUCN with helpful Guidelines for Planning and Management  entitled "Sustainable Tourism in Protected Areas".

You can download it here: http://cmsdata.iucn.org/downloads/pag_008.pdf  

This is an excellent piece of work and well worth reading.  For businesses interested in some of the techniques required to carry out research related to managing their business in a protected area, I recommend you look at the Linking Tourism, Communities and Conservation, A tourism assessment process by Gutierrez, et. al. which is an excellent practical guide. 



and I should add that we have three MSc courses here at Edinburgh Napier which might be of interest:  MSc Ecotourism, MSc Wildlife Biology and Conservation and MSc Conservation and Management of Protected Areas.
