    We study trans-national valuation of conservation outcomes in two neighbouring countries Sweden and Denmark.

    The experimental design allow us to separate country and distance effects on values.

    Respondents prefer conservation in their own country over neighbouring countries.

    Value decreases with distance from respondents' home location.

    The results are important for the design of trans-national conservation policies.
