  • Enhancing communications of the Ministry of Environment and Forestry around conservation issues through improved capacity in media engagement and public outreach;
  • Improving the communications capabilities of national parks, including developing content and a more effective format for all national park websites; and
  • Developing a training and mentoring program for national park support groups from communities in or near parks and conservation areas to build leadership skils and advocacy capacity.
