America's Unofficial Ambassadors

We work at the grassroots level throughout the Muslim World to counter violent extremism before it takes hold, to promote tolerance and understanding, and to foster better relations with the United States.

Earth Day Across the Globe

              AUA volunteers will have the chance to become environmental educators, promote ecotourism, and all in all become one with nature at Ifrane National Park in Morocco this summer. While many may not be aware of much beyond Morocco’s main tourist spots and desert, Ifrane National Park is surprisingly home the largest forests of Morocco. There are numerous lakes and many species of trees including the Mediterranean Oak and the Cedar Tree which are refuge to different types of birds and the famous Barbary Macaque ape. Widespread sheep breeding is also an important feature of the park as well. In the spirit of Earth Day, we are proud to send Unofficial Ambassadors to broaden the promotion of Ifrane National Park and to also keep an eye out for an 800-year-old Cedar Tree located somewhere in the park’s forests!
