Population Sustainability in Rural Communities: the Case of Two British National Parks

Abstract: 
The article focuses on population and migration patterns in national parks. A case study is performed on Cairngorms and Peak District National Parks, in particular. The national parks population has unique characteristics with the effects of migration having a more severe effect than in other rural populations. The increasing elderly population brings about population sustainability problems. The article makes projections with regards to the recent migration, birth, and death rates. Policy is suggested to maintain the sustainability of the national parks populations.
