In partnership with Peru's National Services for Protected Areas

The International Conservation Corps team and ICCF staff visited SERNANP managers in their headquarters, the Palomino and Lachay protected areas, and met with park rangers, community leaders, and tourism operators.

Many concrete collaborative opportunities were identified where ICCF and SERNANP can work together in a sustained partnership to strengthen the management of national parks and the natural resources they protect, including the transfer of knowledge and best practices to develop capacity.

About the International Conservation Corps

The International Conservation Corps shares the U.S.’s and Canada’s deep knowledge and experience in protected area and natural resource management with developing countries to increase their human and institutional capacity to effectively manage their natural resources.

Through partnerships with North American conservation agencies, their corresponding retiree organizations, and ICCF’s corporate and NGO partners, the International Conservation Corps organizes and exports carefully selected and highly skilled teams of experts to work directly with developing country government officials and NGO partners to strengthen the management of national systems of protected areas and natural resources.
