Abstract :

The aim of this study is to discuss the relationship between visitor’s environmental awareness and the level of education in the Manas Lake. A total of 99 questionnaires were gathered for data analysis using descriptive statistics, t-testing, the results showed that most of the visitors are 23 to 35 years old with a college education. The means and standard deviations indicate that tourists express a positive degree of cognition of environmental awareness and recreational behaviors. They suggest that polluting the environment is harmful to the natural ecosystem and that the natural resources of ecotourism are fragile, as well as expressing a high degree of recognition of the need to protect the Lake There were significant differences in the degree of cognition related to the variables of age, number of visits and reasons for visiting. We found that most respondents with relatively high levels of education would like to learn more about the environment of the Lake and are supportive of its conservation.
