National Parks Magazine: Pushing Boundaries
« on: October 22, 2011, 05:11:20 PM »
In what seems to be an excellent article on the International Park relationship between Big Bend National Park & Sierra del Carmen Restoration and Protected Area. For the first time, i have read what Amy Lienbach Marquis has, in a nutshell, explained in perfect detail how the local international relationship of the land has evolved from the rustics begginings, then to the communal lands known as Ejidos to the more recent concept of land ownership in Mexico has sustained almost all kinds of hardships and difficulties. And how the implementation of both the U.S. and Mexico models are beign mixed to give birth to a new more practical model of International Parks, which could set off a chain of positive initiatives in other important places in the world.

 The article in question is no more than 5 pages long, so it will be a very interesting read...with pictures of the area. It also gives us, some near future expectations of the working model and how we will make it work.

 So do enjoy.

Homero

Stay thirsty, my friends.
