Peru Expeditions Trip 6days .

Peru Expeditions Trip: Tambopata-Bahuaja Project, Peruvian Amazon Althelia has participated in a US$12 million investment programme in Madre de Dios Peru, to finance and safeguard the long-term conservation of 570,000 hectares of natural forest in the National Reserve of Tambopata and Bahuaja-Sonene National Park. This investment is implemented on the ground in partnership with a leading Peruvian  which has 27 years of expertise in implementing and managing community- based sustainable development projects, and the Ministry of Environment’s (MINAM) National Service for Natural Protected Areas (SERNANP), which supervises and manages Peru’s national protected areas. The total investment in the project will be spread over 7 years, and includes Althelia investment of US$7m secured by verified carbon units resulting from avoided deforestation. The Tambopata and Bahuaja-Sonene protected areas in the Peruvian Amazon are considered as the biodiversity capital of Peru and one of the world’s most important biodiversity hotspots, but the areas are under continued threat of deforestation and forest degradation from migratory slash and burn agriculture and illegal gold mining has designed a strategy in partnership with the public and private sectors, based on conservation and local sustainable development. As part of  mandate to achieve conservation and sustainable economic development of the area, a strategy has been designed and successfully validated under the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) and Carbon, Community and Biodiversity (CCB) Standards at the Gold level. The project will result in the long-term protection of the Tambopata National Reserve and Bahuaja-Sonene National Park, its wildlife and the people living within and around the
Reserve and Park. Althelia’s investment, which aligns environmental conservation and economic development, finances biological monitoring, scientific research and surveillance of the core protected area, as well as providing the necessary financial resources to improve the agricultural practices of more than 1,100 small farmers and their families living in the area surrounding the protected areas. These improvements include the installation of up to 4,000 hectares of agro-forestry systems based on fine and aromatic cocoa trees as well as the establishment of a smallholder cooperative that will enable more optimal management of harvesting, processing and commercialisation of cocoa. At full scale, the investment will produce at least 3,200 tonnes per annum of certified zero-deforestation organic and Fairtrade cocoa to empower the long-term financial and environmental sustainability of the area, its ecosystems and its population strategy will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 450,000 tonnes per year, contributing to climate change mitigation as well as generating significant co-benefits for wildlife, communities and the environment

Description : Peru and the Tambopata? Steeped in pre Columbian history, Peru is a land of rich cultural heritage, archaeological treasures, astounding natural diversity and magnificent colonial cities. Add to all this the most strikingly familiar image of South America
In 1990, the Peruvian government set aside 75,000 hectares to protect the watersheds of the Tambopata and Candamo rivers. The area, called the Tambopata National Reserve, is adjacent to the Bahuaja Sonene National Park and is located in Puerto Maldonado, Madre de Dios, Peru. This land contains some of the last untouched lowland and premontane tropical humid forests in the Amazon. This Connecticut – sized area of pristine forest contains 1300 bird species, 32 parrot species (10% of the world’s total), 200 mammal species, 1200 butterfly species and over 10,000 species of vascular plants. The Tambopata River, which flows from the eastern slope of the Andes along the border of the Puno Region and through the Tambopata National Reserve, offers thrilling Class II-IV Andean whitewater. The area passes through virgin tropical rainforest and some of the most pristine and unspoiled areas in the Amazon basin. Bordering Peru and Bolivia, the wild, remote and 2 unspoiled river offers the only access to a spectacular display of tropical plants and animalspecies. AMAZON South America is home to the largest contiguous tropical rainforest in the world the Amazon rainforest. The Amazon spreads across much of South America, including Columbia, Ecuador, Peru, Boliva, Brazil, Venezuela, Guyana, Surinam, and French Guiana. The Amazon basin has been continuously inhabited for more than 12,000 years.WILDLIFE The region includes more than 570 species of birds, 1200 butterfly species and many animal groups, like the howler monkey, tapir, capibaras, macaws, giant otters, black and white caiman, ocelot, and jaguar.The adventure visits the “Colpa of the Guacamayos” (Macaw Lick), the largest known Macaw Lick in the world. On any given morning, hundreds of Macaws and other parrots visit the lick for its salty rich clay. This is one of the greatest birding spectacles in the world and provides a once lifetime opportunity for photographers. HISTORY For many, the first word that comes to mind when thinking of Peruvian history is “Inca”. Certainly, the Inca civilization is the most studied and well recognized of South America’s pre – Columbian cultures, but Peru’s first inhabitants were nomadic hunters who are believed to have migrated across the Bering Straight and into the Americas about 20,000 years ago.Domestication of the llama, alpaca and guinea pig began by about 4000 BC and, around the same time, people began planting seeds and learning simple horticulture methods.Various forms of the Andean staple, the potato, began to be grown as a crop around 3000 BC and weaving and fishing became commonplace. Between 2000 and 1000 BC, ceramics began to evolve from basic, undecorated pots to sculpted, incised and simply colored pots of high quality. Weaving and fishing also improved, as well as horticulture due to the development of irrigation. Toward the end of this period, agricultural terraces began to be constructed in the highlands.
Between the initial years of civilization in Peru and the rise and fall of the Inca Empire, many cultures shared in the development of weaving, pottery, agriculture, religion and architecture. But for all its greatness, the Inca Empire existed for barely a century. Beginning in the 1430s, the Inca conquered most of the cultures in the area stretching from southern Colombia to central Chile. Like the Wari before them, the Incas imposed their way of life on the peoples they conquered and created magnificent cities with impressive urban developments. Thus, when the Spanish arrived, most of the Andean area had been politically united by Inca rule. (For more information on the history of Inca and post- Inca civilization in Peru please refer to our recommended reading list).
ARCHAEOLOGY :Peru is unequalled in South America in its archaeological wealth and many experts find the ancient sites and cultures as exciting as those of Central America, Egypt and the Mediterranean Learning about and visiting these centuries – old ruins is an extraordinary supplement to this program.
CULTURE :Peru is multicultural society, with one part containing predominately white and mestizo middle
and upper classes, and the other made up of mostly poor Amerindian campesinos. Ninety percent of the population is Roman Catholic, and soccer and bullfighting are among the most popular pastimes. Traditional Andean music is popularly referred to as musica folklorica and is frequently encountered at street fairs and fiestas. The most representative wind instruments are quenas and zampoñas. Although string instruments were introduced by the Spanish, musica folklorica groups make use of the charango a tiny 10 stringed guitar with the box traditionally made of an armadillo shell. Percussion instruments include drums madefrom hollowed out tree trunks and stretched goatskin and rattles of goat hooves. Peruvian crafts are based on pre – Hispanic necessities such as weaving, pottery, and metallurgy. Today, beautifully colored woven cloth is seen in traditional ponchos, belts,rugs and tapestries. Pottery and jewelry are based on ancient designs.
GEOGRAPHY: Peru lies in the tropics, just south of the equator, and can be divided into three distinctly different
geographical regions: the Pacific coastal strip, the Andes Mountains and the Amazonian lowlands. On the coast, the capital city of Lima and the world class Pacific surf are mainly desert, extending south to Atacama Desert, one of the driest places on earth. Second only to the Himalaya, the Andes rise to over 18,000 feet just miles from the Peruvian coast with year round glaciers above 15,000 feet. This rugged Andean landscape boasts dramatic jagged ranges separated by deep, vertical canyons, rewarding you with the incredible mountain scenery that is the backdrop for mu
ch of our adventure. The eastern slopes of the Andes are cloaked in green cloud forests receiving abundant rainfall asthey drop into the fabled Amazon Basin. Over half of Peru lies within the vast wilderness of the Amazon Basin, penetrated by few roads a nd houses and less than 5% of the country’s population. However, there are thousands of animal and bird species that call the remote jungle home, making Peru one of the most biologically diverse nations on the planet
