Lima, Aug. 25 (ANDINA).
After three months since its opening, the interactive interpretation center at the Manu National Park, located in the Amazon rainforest of Peru, has already received 500 visits, the National Service of Protected Natural Areas by the State (Sernanp) reported Thursday.
According to Senarp, visits are from tourists, locals and school delegations.
This facility was created to inform and educate the public about Manu National Park’s flora and fauna, environmental services, history, culture, among others.
It represents an alternative for environmental education for the villagers of Villa Salvacion, in the province of Manu (Madre de Dios), where it is located.
Sernanp indicated that the center's success is due to the use of simple language and interactive visual elements that invite the visitor to discover the importance of forests and the biodiversity in this part of the country.
