Research. Education. Collaboration. Conservation
We lead long-term wildlife research projects, nature-friendly ecotours, and expeditions, volunteer programs, community development initiatives and nature conservation activities in the Amazon rainforest and Andes mountain ecosystems of Peru
Implementing nature conservation strategies, contributing to sustainable livelihoods and improving our understanding of Peru's
Neotropical ecosystems, since 1997
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.
