We think of national parks and protected areas as permanent fixtures on the landscape, but recent research points to the widespread (but largely overlooked) protected area downgrading, downsizing, and degazettement (PADDD).
In response, PADDDtracker.org is documenting the patterns, trends, causes, and consequences of PADDD
PADDDtracker.org allows you to learn about PADDD and share your experiences with the world: where has PADDD already happened? Where has PADDD been proposed? Why is PADDD happening?
What can you do with PADDDtracker?
PADDDtracker is not intended for:
Documenting new protected areas
Reporting corrections to protected area boundaries
Documenting protected area management effectiveness
Documenting illegal activities within protected areas
