From June 7-15, members of The ICCF Group’s International Conservation Corps traveled to Tayrona National Park to provide technical assistance on the redesign plan for the park’s interpretation center in the Chairama Complex to ensure the exhibits are informative and engaging for the park’s visitors.

The International Conservation Corps team, comprised of Sam Vaughn, Ellis Richard, Michael Locome, Maitte Van Arsdel, and Russell Moore, collaborated with representatives from Natural Parks of Colombia (PNN) and Tayrona National Park on best practices for communication and interpretation of the park for visitors. They visited relevant sites around the interpretation center and park and discussed how to improve communication with visitors to successfully articulate the ecological importance of this protected area.

The proposed plan for the center’s redesign will facilitate relationship-building with the public, conservation organizations, and the private sector to help develop public-private partnerships for the center’s operations. Such a partnership would hopefully help ensure sustainable funding to allow the interpretation center to serve the park’s visitors very soon.
