In July 1999, the first issue of MPA News was published. Its purpose was simple: to help MPA planners and managers learn from each other, no matter where they were in the world. Now 10 years later, MPA News has more than 4000 subscribers in 122 countries. Our staff and editorial board are pleased to continue to serve the field of MPA planning and management. With you, we are building a global community of MPA practitioners.
