Today, almost one year later, park staff are now selling tea to visitors and are in the process of expanding their market even more. They continue to make improvements to the drying house to adapt to local environmental conditions and create a stronger structure. In the future, they are looking into designing coloring books for children with pictures of plants found in the park that are important to the culture and development of the Amazon. These ideas and recommendations were spearheaded by Matthias’s visit, and will help improve the sustainability of the park so visitors can continue to enjoy it and protect the Amazon’s biodiversity for years to come.
