Once you have traveled to Peru, the journey never ends, it is played again and again from memories of the Peruvian jungle. The mind can never rid Amazon Wildlife Tour

Amazon Wildlife 2days.- Peru’s Tambopata region in the Amazon basin is the only area in the world where parrots and macaws gather in their hundreds to eat clay from riverbank mud cliffs. Biosphere Expeditions are working on a unique project to protect them. Parrots in Peru.

Amazon Wildlife Peru:

Amazon Wildlife in Peru. Observe 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 group has amassed and feeding begins in the amazon.

Amazon wildlife :The waters of the Tambopata AmazonWildlife  River begin with the melting snows in the high Andes of Southern Peru. The waters flow north towards the Amazonian wildlife lowlands in a rapid descent through saw-tooth ridges. The cloud forests of this region are dense with every limb matted with fern, orchid and moss and the only trails are those of the secretive spectacled bear and illusive mountain lion the forest grows taller as the river runs through the foothills and then begins its shifting meander into the lowlands. Along the banks of the Tambopata brilliant flocks of macaws concentrate by the hundreds to feed on mineral-rich soil pockets. Giant otters hunt the rivers for enormous catfish. Vast expanses of forest extend in all directions. This great swath of forest and river running from the “ceja de montaña” down to Amazonia is among the most diverse and important expanses of tropical wilderness. This landscape is a vital reservoir of Peru’s biological riches and, because Peru itself is home to such a high percentage of life on earth, the Tambopata-Candamo region is of global conservation significance. The Tambopata-Candamo AmazonWildlife  region is strategically located in the heart of a potential conservation “mega-corridor” that would biologically link conservation units in Peru with those of Bolivia. This corridor and large units such as Tambopata-Candamo AmazonWildlife  offer the best hope for retaining viable populations of animals such as giant otters and other species AmazonWildlife with large space requirements.

Tambopata-Candamo AmazonWildlife is also now well documented as having a highly diverse flora and fauna with many endemic species. This publication describes the biological importance of Tambopata-Candamo  and makes recommendations regarding the conservation and development of the region. The investigations lead to a clear conclusion. A protected area in Tambopata Candamo  AmazonWildlife can serve as a key element in the sustainable development of the region and as a priceless resource for the future of Peru. Two of the authors of this report, two people who knew Tambopata-Candamo AmazonWildlife well- the legendary ornithologist Ted Parker and the prodigious botanist Al Gentry – are now gone. They died August 3, 1993 while working towards their life-long dream: the understanding and conservation of tropical diversity. Tambopata- Candamo was a large part of their dream and it is tragic they will not see the creation of Tambopata Candamo as a national park. But this dream remains very much still alive. We hope this report will further the goal of establishing Tambopata-Candamo AmazonWildlife  as a protected area for the people of Peru and the world for all time

Parrots in Perú:

Amazon Wildlife in Tambopata – Peru.- It’s 5am and the amber fringes of dawn are just visible above the jungle canopy. Howler monkeys have woken us with their morning call – more an eerie encroaching rumble than a recognisable primate howl – Amazon Wildlife.

My room mate, Gail, stumbles out from under her mosquito net, staring sleepily at me through the half-light in Amazon Wildlife. As her eyes focus on our environs – a dense-fronded wall of green surrounding our little wooden base camp and stretching onwards for hundreds of kilometres, she suddenly springs to life.

‘We’re in the middle of the bloody Amazon,’ she yelps with a shout of idiot glee. I couldn’t have put it more succinctly if I had tried – Amazon Wildlife.

If not strictly in the geographical centre of the Amazon Peru, we are indeed in the thick of it: located in south-eastern Peru, 50 kilometres from the Bolivian border and 150 from Brazil’s, our research centre amounts to a tiny spec in an immense green wilderness in Amazon Wildlife.

To get to this spot, arriving the night before, we had travelled by bus and boat. The last leg involved seven hours by ‘peke-peke’ (outboard-motor boat) from Puerto Maldonado, the river port capital of Madre de Dios, Peru’s ‘jungle’ province. Access to this area, other than by boat, is impossible. Three hours up river, you pass the last permanent human settlement; after that, it’s just you, the rainforest and an awe-inspiring parade of the planet’s most endangered species – Amazon Wildlife.

Primarily, we have travelled here to study the parrots. Peru’s Tambopata region is the only area in the world where Parrots and Macaws eat clay from riverbank mud cliffs, known as colpas or clay licks. There is no conclusive answer as to why the birds do this but prevailing scientific opinion suggests that clay particles help neutralise toxins ingested with their diet of unripened fruits and nuts in Amazon Wildlife.

Whatever the reason in Amazon Wildlife, 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 Peru.

As with many areas in the Amazon basin, increasing economic development is putting a strain on the natural resources of Peru’s rainforest – Amazon Wildlife.

Logging, farming and tourism are a growing threat to its wildlife in the Amazon, particularly in this area along Las Piedras River just east of Manu, Peru’s premier national park. Unlike Manu and the neighbouring Tambopata River nature reserve, the adjacent Las Piedras river system is not yet protected. But like the Tambopata Reserve, Las Piedras represents a body of water running through one of the largest tracts of pristine rainforest on the planet – Amazon Wildlife. 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 of Amazon Wildlife – clay lick behaviour, mammal and bird population densities and effects of human traffic on wildlife. The published results are then presented to decision-makers in Peru (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 Wildlife Peru.

All very well and worthy but as some of our team of Amazon Wildlife has never so much as spotted a macaw outside of a zoo cage, we approach the first morning with
some trepidation. One advantage of going on a Biosphere expedition is that its members do not have to have any scientific experience or qualifications. This sound idea enables Joe Public to work together with local scientists and volunteer their manpower. More or less all the money paid for the trip contributes toward sustaining the project.

They have a formidable task ahead of them (Amazon wildlife). Our first lesson involves listening to local animal noises on tape and learning to identify them in the amazon. We settle down at a long wooden table in the camp ‘dining room’ which, like the dorm and shower blocks, amounts to little more than an enormous raised wooden platform with a pitched, palmthatched roof. Unlike the other living areas, the dining room has no walls whatsoever (the bedrooms are also gloriously open to the elements on one side). As Monday morning meetings go, this sets an al fresco precedent – Amazon Wildlife.

Along with Parrots and Macaws, numerous mammals also feed at the colpas and part of our job will involve identifying and monitoring species such as the Black Spider Monkey, Red Howler Monkey, Red-and-grey Brocket Deer, Collared Peccary (a type of wild pig) and Tapir. But as the taped jungle soundtrack consequently reveals, with monkeys sounding like delicate tropical birds and birds doing a damn fine impression of huge howling mammals, this was going to be even trickier than we thought (Amazon Wildlife Peru).
