Conservation panel audience. In July 2008, the GCI with the Asociacion Tikal organized a panel focusing on the conservation of archaeological sites in the Maya region within the context of the XXII Simposio de Investigaciones Arqueologicas in Guatemala City. The aim of the panel was to bring attention to the specific technical and managerial issues of archaeological sites exposed to environmental and human threats as well as to explore potential ways to improve the conservation of Maya archaeological sites.
