International cooperation

Tatra National Park is involved in cooperation with the Rocky Mountain National Park in the USA and the Tatrzański Park Narodowy (Tatra National Park) in Poland.

The goal of cooperation between the national parks is to support international cooperation, support fellow national parks and to enhance the experience levels and professional training of personnel in all parks through projects involving international cooperation. Cooperation involves the exchange of technical and professional skills, information, data, technologies, training and experience. Potential areas of cooperation include: • Nature conservancy work, monitoring the quality of air, water, flora and fauna, • Electronic communication and exchange of information, • Environmental education, • Exchange of experience and volunteering programs, • Eco tourism, • Promotion and exchange of information, in particular in new technologies to monitor hiking and tourism operations. 

The partnership and cooperation agreement was signed on 22 April 2012 in Zakopane, Poland for a period of 5 years.

The park covers 415 square miles (1,075 square kilometres). The park has a total of 114 named peaks above 10,000 feet (3,048 metres) and 147 glacial lakes. Longs Peak at 14,259 feet (4,346 metres) is the tallest peak in the park and is located in northern Colorado. Approximately three million people visit the park annually, making it the sixth most visited national park in the United States. Visitors may also use the Trail Ridge Road in the summer, which is the highest road in America, which divides the park from east to west and reaches an elevation of 12,183 feet (3,713 metres).
