San Jose de Moro Archaeological Program Wins First International “Tourism Cares” Award!

San Jose de Moro Archaeological Program is the winner of the first International Turismo Cuida/Tourism Cares Contest!

SPI’s San Jose de Moro, Peru project was awarded recently the First International Tourism Cares/Turismo Cuida award. Sponsored by the world’s leading travel and tourism companies, the award is given for outstanding work in sustainability and preservation, both of which are critical to SPI’s mission. The award recognizes both the job creation (22 new permanent jobs!) from tourist development and the resultant end to looting at the site. The accompanying $15,000 grant will aid our continued work on sustainable tourism and economic, social and cultural development at Moro.

Congratulations to all of those involved on their hard work.
