Tourism achievements by Park Ambassadors win gold 

Among the key strengths of the WA Parks Foundation are its 51 Park Ambassadors.  These are people who love our WA parks, inspiring in others an appreciation of their uniqueness and value to the community.

Park Ambassador Ryan Mossny is a specialist in tourism product planning and development.

We were delighted at the news recently of success achieved by businesses led by two of our Ambassadors in the 2021 Perth Airport WA Tourism – Business Awards.

Ryan Mossny is co-founder of the recently launched and very exciting Matagarup Zip+Climb which won a gold award in the New Tourism Business category.

Ryan, who has made a huge contribution to tourism in WA, is also Chair of the Forum Advocating Cultural and Eco-Tourism (FACET) and Director and Co-founder of the award winning, Perth-based Two Feet & a Heartbeat Walking Tours experience.
