Conservation

The Park’s main task is to conserve, manage and protect our local flora, fauna and culture.

In order to conduct our main task successfully, it is crucial for our park to constantly have knowledge about:

  • The current state of our flora, fauna and ecosystems
  • The current state of the cultural landmarks within the park
  • Long term implications that can sustain our main goal

The current state of the natural surroundings is being researched trough several monitoring and research programs. These programs are being conducted with international partners and will provide park management with valuable implications that further support sustainable management of Parke Arikok. Our current projects are:

  • Bat monitoring (on going)
  • Cascabel Monitoring (on going)
  • Reforestation pilot project (design phase)
  • Restoration of ‘Cunucu Arikok’ (in progress)

Keep in mind that nature management is a continuous learning process and that our park will continue to strive to launch monitoring/ research projects that enable us to achieve our main goal.
