Definitions and major players:
The concept of “protected space” always makes me sigh, because... yes, we have come to a point where we need to protect natural spaces and other forms of life from degradation and destruction by humans. The National Parks Service (NPS) and International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) have similar missions. They aim to preserve unimpaired natural and cultural resources, conserve the integrity and diversity of nature, and ensure that any use of natural resources is equitable and ecologically sustainable. Among other achievements, the IUCN worked with United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) to protect World Heritage sites around the world, such as the Taj Mahal in India and Serengeti National Park in East Africa.
