Madidi conservationist wins award at World Conservation Congress
Date:9/13/2012

Oscar Loayza of WCS's Madidi Program in Bolivia has received the Kenton Miller Award for Innovation in Protected Areas Management at the IUCN World Conservation Congress in Jeju, Republic of Korea from Sept. 6-15.

Loayza, the Sub Director of the WCS Greater Madidi-Tambopata Landscape Conservation Program, was chosen by an international jury for his development of initiatives that strengthened indigenous participation in the management of protected areas, leading to improved governance. His efforts in Madidi National Park one of the world's richest protected areas for biodiversity helped to develop favorable conditions for governance, promoted alliances between the Bolivian park service, conservationists and indigenous peoples building upon Bolivian government policies to consolidate indigenous territorial and representation rights in a region challenged by large infrastructure projects, roads, dams, oil exploration and small scale mining.

Loayza is the former director of Planning at SERNAP (Bolivia's National Park Service) and was also director of Apolobamba National Park and Madidi National Park.

"At the Wildlife Conservation Society, we all extend our congratulations to our colleague, Oscar Loayza," said WCS President and CEO Cristin Samper. "His innovative approaches ensuring the inclusion of indigenous communities in protected area management exemplifies WCS's conservation action across the globe. We thank the IUCN community for recognizing Oscar with the Kenton Miller Award."

"We are inspired by Oscar's work, and delighted to present the Kenton Miller Award to this well-deserving individual," says Nik Lopoukhine, Chair of the World Commission on Protected Areas. "His innovative approach to governance of protected areas has ensured that not only do indigenous people participate in the process, but they are empowered and become an integral part of it."

The Kenton Miller Award is given annually by IU
