The new IUCN Tourism and Visitor Management in Protected Areas best practices was released on November 27, 2018.

Faculty and graduate students from the Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism Management (PRTM) and Tourism Extension at NC State are among the 58 contributing authors of this publication. The publications is part of a best practice series published by the IUCN aimed at developing capacity for a protected area management.

Dr. Yu-Fai Leung (Professor, PRTM) served as the Editor-in-Chief. Dr. Leung was quoted in a recent press release, “This publication is a major milestone in building a global community of practice in protected area tourism. The diversity of best-practice examples, both geographically and topically, attest that innovative solutions for sustainable tourism and visitation in protected areas are achievable in all protected area systems regardless of their geography, governance types, and cultures. Sharing these cases through this publication and its associated online resource directory is essential if tourism is to fulfill its positive role in global conservation.”

Contributing authors include: Dr. Erin Seekamp (Associate Professor, PRTM, & Tourism Extension Specialist), Dr. Lincoln Larson (Assistant Professor, PRTM), Dr. Chelsey Walden-Schreiner (former PRTM Research Associate & Alumna), and Dr. Anna Miller (USDA Forest Service Postdoctoral Researcher & PRTM Alumna) were contributing authors.
