Greeting from peace in nature & ecotourism.

Peace in nature & ecotourism (PNE) is Community ecotourism organization , dedicated to improve the livelihoods of local communities living close to protected areas by involving them in various income generating activities which are related to conservation and ecotourism. The PNE upholds that in order to break the circle of poverty in the community, community participation in natural resource management as well as provision of a joint learning experience in sustainable ecotourism and conservation are key tools for development.

We are planning to create program which involving children living close to protected area on conservation program, Children will be training about wildlife conservation in primary school, all programs will be recorded on Documentary and distributed on TV/ television the programs, the aims is giving children voice , initiating communication between children and children and children and adults and including children as partner in Conservation ,this will done through video documentary children will express themselves and reflect their own lives and eyes about poaching in their community land.

As you are stake holder of conservation we seeking advice from you about this programs we intend to implement on near future, we will appreciate to hear from you

Journal of Park and Recreation Administration (JPRA) Call for Papers: Managing Protected Areas: Global Perspectives

Call for Paper

sRaet protected area, Hove in Arendal

Journal of Park and Recreation Administration (JPRA)

Special Issue: Managing Protected Areas: Global Perspectives
hisp-card1-shdw.jpg
The establishment of Yellowstone National Park (the world’s first national park) in 1872 has been the foundation for the global protected area movement for biodiversity conservation. This legacy is evident with the significant global growth in the protected areas network which currently constitutes approximately 12% of the world’s land surface, but only about 1% for marine protected areas. The substantial growth in protected areas has occurred over the past three decades with considerable increase in developing countries. However, with expansion, the concept of protected areas has evolved beyond the traditional model of strict biodiversity conservation to incorporate improvement of local livelihoods.Protected areas are generally managed by government entities to safeguard the natural, ecological, and cultural values. However, this model of management has also diversified to incorporate alternate approaches such as co-managed protected areas, indigenous and community conserved areas, private protected areas, and so forth. Given the various types, multiple use, and management structures in protected areas, the need for effective management to meet respective objectives is critical. The challenges vary among different types and location of protected areas, as developing countries have a more pronounced requirement to engage and improve local community’s needs.Protected area management is complex as managers will need to find the optimal balance with respect to environmental, sociocultural, and economic issues within and adjacent to the management area. The three dimensions are not mutually exclusive as an integrated approach is preferred for contemporary protected area management. This call for papers invites conceptual and empirical research, case studies, and comparative analysis. Submission that details research, concepts, and practices relevant to current understanding and management of protected areas will be given priority. Also, given the JPRA audience, it is important that research implications should have relevance for managers of protected areas and policy makers. This special issue has been formulated to contribute to the discourse leading to the 6th International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) World Parks Congress to be held in 2014. The IUCN World Parks Congress is the largest global forum on protected areas that is held once in every decade.

JPRA invites papers for a special edition entitled Managing Protected Areas: Global Perspectives. Submissions might include but not be limited to the following topics:

Manuscripts will need to follow the format instructions for the Journal of Park and Recreation Administrationand will undergo the normal blind review process with three reviewers. The deadline for submission of papers is November 1, 2012. The special edition is scheduled for publication in the third quarter issue of 2013. Papers should be submitted with a cover letter by email to:Brijesh Thapa, Ph.D.Eric Friedheim Tourism Institute
