Geoparks were created for the purpose of locating regions with superior geological, natural, and cultural heritage. Geoparks work to protect these heritages and to share them with people from all over the world.
The word "Geopark" combines the words "geology/geography" and "park" to refer to a region that is recognized to have geological features of superior quality. But Geoparks are not just about rocks and fossils. Geoparks also offers an abundance of cultural heritage, history, and beautiful natural landscapes, making them ideal ecotourism destinations.
