The thesis, entitled as «Delta National Park: Investigating Citizens' Perceptions of their Area's Wetland», is a thesis that aims to explore the attitudes, perceptions and behaviors of citizens about Delta National Park, while aiming to examine whether the necessary knowledge was provided or produced to participants regarding both wetlands and the Delta National Park in educational institutions - schools and to investigate whether participants place greater emphasis on protecting the environment of wetlands in general, wetlands of the Delta Axios National Park in particular, or on improving the country's economy through quarries or fish farms, for an example. Another aim is to examine whether participants understand the importance of personal awareness and environmental ethics in protecting wetlands in general, the Delta National Park in particular. In order to achieve these objectives, a primary quantitative sample survey was carried out with a questionnaire. The results of the survey were analyzed using the SPSS statistical program in frequency distribution and in a nutshell indicate that the majority of participants do not have sufficient knowledge about the wetland of their area, although they note that they are interested in being informed about the problems of their wetlands in the future and recognize the contribution of Delta National Park of to the national culture. The present work has practical implications and can be a powerful pedagogical and teaching tool among many others in the context of environmental education in Greece.
