ParksWatch can be described as something
akin to Amnesty International for protected areas. Through partnerships with
in-country conservation organizations and individuals, ParksWatch sponsors on-site
evaluations of parks. Our primary product is a Park
Profile, which compiles and synthesizes the substantial amount of information
gathered from a comprehensive literature review and a thorough on-site evaluation.
We thus provide an essential service
that can inform park administrations and the conservation community at large
of the successes and failures of conservation programs, and draw attention to
problems wherever and whenever they occur.
