About Us
Who we are

Fauna Forever is a Peruvian non-profit organisation. Our mission is to build a world where nature conservation and sustainability thinking are cornerstones of a society's development and wellbeing, resulting in a healthy and prosperous Planet Earth for all.

What we do

Our objectives are to identify and implement long-lasting solutions that conserve Peru's biological and cultural diversity. We achieve this by leading our own projects, sharing information, and collaborating in as many positive ways as possible.

Where we do it

Our work is focused on the lowland rainforest and Andean cloud-forest and aquatic ecosystems of the Amazon Basin in Peru, with an emphasis on the regions of Cusco, Madre de Dios, and Puno.
