Adventure Wildlife Center: The Tambopata National Reserve is situated in Tambopata River Basin in the south-east of Peru and the south of the city of Puerto Maldonado. It covers an area of 274,690 hectares. Objectives, for which the Peruvian government established this important reserve in 1990, are to preserve its flora, fauna and ecological processes as a sample of the Amazon tropical rainforest as well as to create conservation processes that ensure sustainable use of natural resources and landscape. The Tambopata National Reserve possesses one of the highest levels of biodiversity worldwide!! Among its most common ecosystems belong palm swamps, riparian forests, marshes and bamboo groves, which physical characteristics allow local people make use of natural resources.

On this tour, we visit the most famous clay-lick of the Tambopata National Reserve – Chuncho Clay-Lick!! Chuncho is a 10 meter high muddy side bank of the Tambopata River. The clay-lick attracts many species of macaws, parrots and parakeets because of nutritive consistence of its earth! The most precious Chuncho´s visitor is the gorgeous scarlet macaw!

Other places, which we tour, are the stunning El Gato Waterfall, Sandoval Lake with its typical inhabitants – a family of giant river otters and a local specific – a palm clay-lick!

Adventure Wildlife Center Macaw Clay Lick Chuncho  – 5d/4n

For Parrots and Macaws, colpa gatherings are a social event. In twos and threes, they group in the treetops, chattering, playing and hanging upside down on vines, until a big enough groups has amassed and feeding begins Whatever the reason, it is integral to their survival and the act of feeding itself, often comprising hundreds of birds at a time, is one of the Amazon’s most spectacular displays. As with many areas in the Expeditions Amazon basin, increasing economic development is putting a strain on the natural resources of Peru’s rainforest. Logging, farming and tourism are a growing threat to its wildlife, particularly in this area along Las Piedras River just east of Manu, Peru’s premier national park. Unlike Manu and the neighboring Tambopata River nature reserve, the adjacent Las Piedras river system is not yet protected. But like the Tambopata, Las Piedras represents a body of water running through one of the largest tracts of pristine rainforest on the planet. It’s an area considered to be one of the world’s hotspots in terms of biodiversity – the heart of the Amazon. The aim of this six-week expedition is to gather data – clay lick behavior, mammal and bird population densities and effects of human traffic on wildlife. The published results are then presented to decision-makers in Peru Amazon Expeditions (the government, park authorities and the like) to provide them with valuable information on how to manage this natural eco-tourism resource – one which is increasingly becoming essential to the regional economy.


Amazon Biodiversity to Adventure Wildlife Center  :The Madre de Dios region, where the Tambopata National Reserve is located, is recognized as the “biodiversity capital of Peru”, supporting 30% of Peru’s biodiversity despite only covering 7% of its national territory. It is home to some of the most inspiring, important and threatened species in the world, including giant river otters and a staggering 209 species and subspecies of monkey, including howler, squirrel and spider monkeys and several species of marmoset. There are 21 threatened species found on the IUCN Red List including jaguars, giant armadillos, manned wolves and blue macaws.
The project maintains healthy ecosystems that shelter populations of large mammals that were extensively hunted due to the high value of their skins and furs. The region also hosts nearly 35% of all Peru’s reptiles, and 40% of the country’s frogs, toads, salamanders and other amphibians. The Tambopata National Reserve is characterized by a rich diversity of flora species as well as  fauna, with over 1200 plants identified so far

A brief summary of the climate, community and biodiversity benefits generated by the project since the project start date and during the current implementation period covered  in Adventure Wildlife Center . For the period July 1, 2010 – June 30, 2013 the project kept 1785.89 hectares of tropical rainforest deforestation threatening, belonging to the Tambopata National Reserve and Bahuaja Sonene National Park. This meant a net reduction in emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) of 811 669.06 t CO2-e in comparison with the baseline scenario.
Has developed sustainable productive activities such as agroforestry, the timber logging, sustainable use of palm trees and the recovery of areas degraded by mining and agricultural activities. It has supported the development of technical tools for managing areas of High Conservation Value areas such as areas where tourism activities and use of chestnut nut are developed, both located inside the protected natural areas Capabilities for controlling and monitoring the RNTAMB and PNBS has improved through the construction of checkpoints and monitoring and implementation and logistical support for official rangers. Also, the participation of the population in the buffer zone in control and supervisory were encouraged through training and implementation of volunteer rangers. During this period, the governance of natural resources was promoted, through organizational strengthening and the advice and facilitation of border establishment processes of the territory of communities located in the project area.
Through the implementation of the biological monitoring system we have information on conservation targets. It is emphasized that for the current reporting period, have increased the attendance record of jaguar (Panthera onca). In the case of Giant otter (Pteronura brasiliensis) the project area remains part of the important space for its ecology. It is also important the records that have had of the presence of populations, globally significant source, of Maned Wolf (Chrysocyon brachyurus) and the marsh deer (Blastocerus dichotomus), whose conservation gives exceptional characteristics in terms of biodiversity. To this period, also the result of the monitoring the “pampas del heath” have been reported 9 new species for Peru.
In the Pampas del Heath, unique sample in the country of moist savanna, biological monitoring has been implemented, which for the period July 01, 2010 – June 30, 2013 reported the following findings.
1  Adventure Wildlife Center Insects  : diurnal butterflies (Lepidoptera: Papilionoidea); 348 species of which 18 are new records for Peru, many of them distributed in Brazil, Bolivia and Paraguay. To moths 47 species were reported, 17 species of Sphingidae family and 30 species of Saturniidae family, including 5 species are possible new records for Peru.
2 Adventure Wildlife Center – Amphibians and reptiles : 40 species of amphibians, belonging to the anura order, and within 8 families and 17 genera were recorded. We report for the first time to Peru 7 species of amphibians; which considerably increase the awareness of the diversity of amphibians to Peru. 30 species of reptiles were reported, belonging to three orders, 15 families and 29 genera. We report for the first time to Peru 1 genus and 6 species. They are all part of the fauna of Brazil and Bolivia.
3 Adventure Wildlife Center –  Birds: During the expeditions we could register the presence of 280 species specifically in the savanna ecosystem, gallery forests within the savanna and river banks of Heath River, which increases the list of the known area to 470 species. From the total, 22 species were new records for the pampas, including recording 03 species new to the country
4 Adventure Wildlife Center – Mammals: We recorded a total of 70 species, of which 16 are new reports for the Pampas del Heath, three are new records for Peru (Unduavi gracile opossum, Rhogeessa cf hussoni and Rhogeessa cf. io) and a new species of rodent for science: Oecomys sp.
As part of the efforts to promote research within these  United Kingdom’s Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) / Scottish Alliance for Geoscience, Environment and Society (SAGES), built within the RNTAMB a tower of 42 meters high and installed a equipment for monitoring emissions methane, carbon dioxide, moisture fluxes, wind speed and solar radiation levels.
Which optional Gold Level criteria are being used and a brief summary of the exceptional benefits generated by the project to meet the requirements of each relevant Gold Level The “Reducing deforestation and degradation in the Tambopata National Reserve and Bahuaja Sonene in the Madre de Dios Region – Peru” project has generated benefits of adaptation to climate change through the promotion of agroforestry systems on local communities in the buffer zone of the Tambopata National Reserve and the protection of species such as large macaws (Ara spp) – through the maintenance of Macaw Clay Licks – that are of touristic importance .The exceptional biodiversity benefit arise from i) the protection of high priority sites for conservation of biodiversity as is in the case of Pampas del Heath, which contains a significant global population of Maned Wolf (Chrysocyon brachyurus) and the Marsh Deer (Blastocerus dichotomus) and ii) conservation of critically endangered species as the Giant otter (Pteronura brasiliensis) and the black spider monkey (Ateles chamek). The presence of these species has been confirmed for the current verification period.
