GEORGETOWN, Guyana (AP) — Guyana is seeking help from experts in Florida to help the South American country properly manage and develop its vast system of national parks.

Environment Minister Robert Persaud said Saturday that he has held meetings with officials at the South Florida National Parks Trust.

Persaud said Guyana also wants to improve its environmental education campaigns and revise its policies to better protect and develop natural resources.

Protected areas in Guyana include Kaieteur Falls, a scenic waterfall in the country's central region that measures about 741 feet (226 meters).
