Exploring Solutions Past: The Maya Forest Alliance Launches New Web Site

The Internet bridges the rich archaeological history of the Maya with the future of communication and understanding

The nonprofit Exploring Solutions Past: The Maya Forest Alliance, focused on cutting-edge applications that solve pressing ecological issues, has launched a new Web site. The site promotes the organization’s critical projects — including Archaeology Under the Canopy, the Maya Forest Garden and El Pilar Peace Park Initiative — and links to the organization’s presence on Facebook and YouTube.

Highlighting the new Maya archaeological destination of El Pilar, promoted in partnership with the governments of Belize and Guatemala, the Internet presence targets travelers inspired by adventure, scholarship and conservation. The site navigates through features on the history of the organization, partners and collaborators, photos, media coverage, and background on the Maya. From the home page, users can find current events and articles as well as the remarkable El Pilar video that, with Jane Goodall and other dignitaries, reveals the Maya secrets of balancing conservation and cultural prosperity.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
