Tompkins got a great deal of criticism for not engaging the local people more in the park efforts, which is only a partially fair accusation. He has learned over time to be more inclusive, and here he sponsors local employment for residents of Amarillo, a scraggly town on the south border of Parque Pumalin that Tompkins has slated for renovation as an ecotourism spot.
