Southeastern Amazon International Center
Illegal forestry and mining operations in the Southeastern region Peru are threatening the natural habitats of the flora and fauna that thrive in the Tambopata region. We are committed to protecting these areas from the effects of these operations.
Center has acquired 1,500 acre area of rainforest for preservation.
“I was aware of illegal mining and logging practices in many areas of the Amazon but saw a need in this particular area to move quickly and decisively to preserve the diversity of species that inhabit the region. There are many acres of forest as well as river basins and tributaries that have been destroyed by these industries and some will require many decades to restore completely.
Through investigative research and solid conservation techniques, our team will provide comprehensive strategies to help curb the deterioration of natural habitats for the diversity of animals and native plants that exist in the Tambopata Region.
Coming in October 2017
