Javier Gaitán Moran, UABC Sur CONAHEC conference proceedings Baja California Sur is among the most advanced Mexican states in touristic development and predicting the broad impacts tourism can have on natural resources and local culture. To protect these resources, it is critical that we train personnel who will manage and implement programs and education efforts in conservation and eco-tourism. Academics from the Universidad Autónoma de Baja California Sur, California State University-Northridge, and the National Outdoor Leadership School have developed a binational program of research and professional development to train experts in these areas. This presentation will review the program's latest developments.
