Amazonas Conservation Initiative
~ Mission ~

Amazonas Conservation Initiative

is dedicated to science-based conservation of threatened wildlife and their habitats, and to sustaining positive human–environment interactions with indigenous people who call the rain forest Home.

We believe conservation success is defined by helping nature thrive so the people who depend on it live productive and sustainable lives.

It means a protected forest with old-growth trees, clean river water, and honoring the traditions of indigenous people so they may live in harmony with nature.
And to strengthen the rainforest ecosystem of the Kampankis area by facilitating sound conservation principles and supporting protection of the community land.

In the face of climate change and other threats to the ecosystems that sustain our planet, we continue to work urgently to save more intact landscapes and the diverse species within.

We are dedicated to our mission: to conserve biologically diverse landscapes in Amazonas, in concert with local cultures, for the well-being of the planet.

Our current project is the

Kampankis Project

Kampankis Project

Amazonas ~ 38,850 sq km (15,000 sq mi) consisting of regions covered by rainforests and mountain ranges. The rainforest zone predominates (72.93%) and it extends to the north over its oriental slope, up to the border with Ecuador in the summits of the Cordillera del Cóndor.

Our area of research: The Kampankis Mountains. Measuring ~180 km long but just 10 km wide, the Kampankis form a knife-thin ridge with a maximum elevation of 1,435m, separated from the Cordillera del Cóndor to the west by a thin strip of lowland forest 40–60km wide that has been inhabited for centuries by Awajún people. The Kampankis Mountains harbor extremely diverse biological communities in which the lowland Amazonian flora and fauna mix with elements typical of Andean montane forests.

Pacaya Samiria
National Park Peru

The basins of the Pacaya and Samiria rivers have been protected by the Peruvian government since 1940: a 5-million acre reserve with over 132 species of mammals, 13 of which are primates. Home to gray and pink dolphins, Amazonian manatees, Giant river Otters, Black Caimans and giant South American River Turtles and land species including Jaguars, Capuchin Monkeys and Spider Monkeys.

The Palomino Project is dedicated to the accumulation and conservation of indigenous knowledge, medicinal plants and traditional methods of use, as well as preservation and protection of the environment and wildlife.

Our Amazonas Conservation Initiative is a collaborative project with Peruvian conservation organizations
and eco-tourist companies who are committed to the protection of the rainforest
and honoring the traditions of indigenous people.
