What is a Geopark?
A Geopark is an area that bring geology, cultural heritage, natural resource and outdoor recreation together with three specific goals.
- To protect geological sites of international significance through proper planning, management and legislation;
- To encourage the sustainable use of geo-sites for knowledge-transfer activities; and
- To promote geo-tourism and local engagement activities in the geopark.
A Geopark status does not imply restrictions on any economic activity inside a Geopark where that activity complies with indigenous, local, regional, and/or federal legislation.
