Based on the perspective of local attachment, this paper constructs a measurement index of local attachment from theree dimensions: local identity, social contact and local dependence. Taking ecological migrants as the object, this paper explores the impact of local attachment on the willingness of ecologWical migrants to participate in the ecological protection of National Park, and establishes a three-stage stepwise regression model and a mediating effect model to explore the mediating effect of social trust. The results show that: the overall level of local attachment of ecological migrants is high; by further improving the level of local attachment of ecological migrants of National Park community, their willingness to participate in ecological protection can be enhanced; social trust plays an important intermediary role in the relationship between local attachment and ecological migrants' willingness to participate in ecological protection.
