Conservation Across Borders: Biodiversity in an Interdependent World
Conservationists have long been aware that political
boundaries rarely coincide with natural boundaries.
From the establishment of early peace parksto the
designation of continental migratory pathways, a
wide range of transborder mechanisms to protect
biodiversity have been established by conservationists
in both the public and private sectors.
Conservation Across Borders presents a broad
overview of the history of transboundary conservation
efforts and an accessible introduction to current issues surrounding
the subject. Through detailed examinations of two initiatives, the
International Sonoran Desert Alliance (ISDA) and the Yellowstone to
Yukon Initiative (Y2Y), the book helps readers understand the benefits
and challenges of landscape-scale protection.
In addition to discussing general concepts and the specific experience
of ISDA and Y2Y, the author considers the emerging concept of conservation
effectiveness and offers a comparative analysis of the two
projects. The book ends with a discussion of the complex relationships
among civil society, governments, and international borders.
By considering the history, goals, successes, and failures of two divergent
initiatives, the book offers important insights into the field of
transborder conservation along with valuable lessons for those studying
or working in the field.
