The Public Lands Institute is partnering with the National Park Service on a new initiative, the International Protected Area Exchange (IPAX). Recognizing the value in protecting our global natural areas, IPAX will utilize UNLV’s research and education expertise to address the need for additional educational resources to benefit protected areas around the world. The initiative began with a visioning session on Nov. 14 at UNLV.

Our  idea  is  to positively  impact  protected  area  uses,  management,    sustainability, and  advocacy around the  world.  The  trans-disciplinary  IPAX  approach  will  empower  participants  through  learning experiences rich in dialogue, information, and investigation, and reflection.  IPAX will include field experiences, seminars, and extended physical and virtual learning environments for international and national participants.

For more information about IPAX, please contact Project Manager Allison Brody with the Public Lands Institute at allison.brody@unlv.edu.
