PARKS, the International Journal of Protected Areas and Conservation, was successfully re-launched at the World Conservation Congress in September, and want to keep the momentum up. Contributions for issue 19.1 of PARKS are now accepted, and it is hoped to get a robust response that captures the breadth and diversity of protected areas conservation worldwide.
PARKS seeks to move the protected areas conservation agenda forward by highlighting the best research and latest innovations in protected areas management and policy. The first re-launched issue included, amongst others, features on meeting Target 11 of the Aichi Biodiversity Targets, connectivity conservation of the great green macaw‘s landscape in Costa Rica, protected area and veterinary fencing in Southern Africa, human health and well-being associated with protected area experiences in Canada, and case studies of successful conservation programmes in tropical Pacific island countries. The forthcoming issue will also reflect this topic and geographic diversity.
Please join in improving the only peer-reviewed journal dedicated wholly to protected areas. The deadline for contributions for issue 19.1 is 31st December 2012. For author guidelines and to access previous issues please see: http://www.iucn.org/parks
