Privately owned and managed protected areas (PPAs): do you know of good marine examples?

A new research project funded by the Linden Trust is collecting evidence about the extent and variety of private protected areas (PPA) around the world. The project, which is collaborating closely with IUCN-WCPA, will be building up a series of national and themed case studies, working with in-country partners. It will also be seeking to strengthen and expand the definition of PPAs, building on the 2008 IUCN protected area category guidelines. Anyone with information to share or questions about the project should contact: Sue Stolton at sue@equilibriumresearch.com
