At the same time, emerging young conservation leaders are creating positive impacts in many protected areas around the world, working in partnership with park agencies, communities and other groups. Learn more about young people being engaged in protected areas through this webinar, which showcases three inspiring solutions from the PANORAMA case study portfolio.

  • Protected Area Tourism - twin webinar (March & April 2016)Lone hiker on Redcliff Beach in Yuraygir National Park, Australia

The tourism business plays a major role in sustaining the global network of protected areas. At the same time, half of all international travellers visit a protected area during their trip. However, the advocates of natural spaces often are concerned about the potential impacts of unsustainable tourism - but when done right, tourism and conservation can greatly benefit from each other.

Presenters from a range of countries introduced their PANORAMA case studies in the webinars, explaining what made them successful and discussed with the audience. The webinars were co-hosted by the IUCN Global Protected Areas Programme and the WCPA Tourism Specialist Group.
