Challenge

There are over 200,000 protected areas worldwide. This represents not only one of the most important land use on earth but it is also one of the most complex natural resource management issues globally. Protected area managers are faced with many challenges. Many are astonishingly resourceful, dealing with such issues as poachers, climate change, alien invasive species, a lack of finances, and so on, and coming up with new approaches and effective practical solutions.

Solution

The Kenton Miller Award recognizes those protected area managers who, through their creativity and dedication, are able to address successfully key issues facing protected areas. It raises awareness among professionals worldwide of these innovative and often inspiring solutions and how to use and replicate them in different situations. Ultimately it promotes our long-term goal of achieving a Protected Planet. For more information, go to the links below.

Long-Term Impact

The world desperately needs solutions for complex problems involving protected areas. Each Kenton Miller Award helps to identify the most powerful and practical solutions and makes them available to the whole community of protected areas managers. Applying these innovative solutions will help to better plan and manage protected areas, making them more resilient and inspiring and encouraging protected area managers to combine their dedication with innovation in their work.
