Article: Connectedness to nature, place attachment and conservation behaviour: Testing connectedness theory among farmers.
“The aim of this study was to explore the relationship between pro-environmental behaviour and two forms of emotional association: attachment to place and connectedness to nature. This relationship is
explored in the context of farmers’ management of native vegetation on their properties. A postal survey was conducted to measure the extent to which farmers felt connected to nature and to their property.”
