Peru Amazon Rainforest Services – Permitting

Partner with Fauna Forever and let us smooth the process of obtaining the research or film-making permits that will allow you and your team legal and unfettered access to the tropical rainforests of Madre de Dios, including protected areas such as the Tambopata National Reserve and Bahuaja Sonene National Park. The permitting process in Peru can take between 2-4 months depending on the type of permit required and whether or not animals will be caught for study or filming purposes, whether voucher specimens will be collected, and which locations will require access. For access to the network of protected areas the process involves submitting paperwork to the Protected Areas Authority (known as SERNANP), and for areas outside reserves or national parks it is the Ministry of Agriculture that rules. Our easy to follow step-by-step guide will ensure no element is missing on the day your permit request is made. Our team can provide the necessary translating services, should these be required, as all documentation must be submitted in Spanish. In addition, we are able to coordinate the necessary transfer of funds to the relevant government department to ensure your request is not delayed.

Due to the not-for-profit status of Fauna Forever, all profits from the permitting services we provide are ploughed straight back into research and conservation efforts in Tambopata.

Why Partner with Fauna Forever?

Over the last 15 years of field research and conservation work in the Tambopata rainforest area of Peru, the Fauna Forever team has learnt how to accomplish its aims in what many would describe as a challenging environment. In this time, we have amassed a plethora of information on how to get things done efficiently, and we’re eager to share this knowledge for the benefit of others.
