This reply was very slow because I have been travelling, but still
important to get it said. Thank you for pointing out my error re the
origin of the 'paper parks' term. I had always thought Graeme Kelleher
had coined it, and had not checked. Your message plus some that followed
have clarified, and I have learned something.
'Paper park' is a great term -- so perfectly evocative of the uselessness
(as flimsy as tissue paper), and so correct since the law and the
management plan are usually printed out on paper, nicely bound, on a
shelf, ready to be shown to anyone who wants to know if the particular MPA
is real or not. Such a perverse view of reality!
