The September 2021 issue of Parks Stewardship Forum, an open-access online journal, features articles on the theme of Connectivity Conservation, guest edited by Jodi A. Hilty, Aaron T. Laur, Gabriel Oppler, and Gary Tabor. 

The six featured theme articles explain recent advances in connectivity conservation, spelling out what has to happen to hit the target of conserving 30% of Earth's lands and waters by 2030 (30x30), exploring how science and policy are aligning to support the livelihoods of local communities and human rights while contributing to global environmental conservation goals, and providing concrete examples of where and how landscape-scale conservation can be applied to meet the challenges of our time.

Parks Stewardship Forum is co-published by the George Wright Society and the Institute for Parks, People, and Biodiversity at the University of California, Berkeley. You can find every issue on two websites:

  • On the University of California’s eScholarship platform at This site is designed for scholarly reference and use. 
  • On the website of the Institute for Parks, People, and Biodiversity: This site is designed with online browsing and reading in mind.

The content of the journal is identical on both sites; only the web interface is different.
