FAO and WWF INDONESIA:

Park and Tourism Planner, System Adviser

ORIGINAL HEADQUARTERS, KOMODO NATIONAL PARK, INDONESIA

Click to enlarge As part of a 6 year national parks and tourism project of UN FAO and the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), from 1979-82 I advised Indonesia’s protected area authorities on establishing their first national parks in Java, Bali, and Komodo. Leading a unit headquartered in Bali, we traveled throughout the Lesser Sunda Islands assessing potential for improved conservation and coordinating development of local and regional nature tourism. We designed and led the field trip program of the Third International Congress on National Parks in Bali, 1982, introducing these national parks and providing a model for future ecotourism itineraries. In a second assignment, in 1990 for WWF-US, I led traveling seminars for mid-level managers, helped prepare for major international funding projects and assisted in World Heritage nominations.
