Peru Nature Tour tamabopata reserve center: Has participated in a US$12 million investment program me 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 NGO AIDER 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’s 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. AIDER has designed a strategy in partnership with the public and private sectors, based on conservation and local sustainable .

Peru Nature tour: conservation and tourism in southeastern Peru areas. Studies made by prior members Tambopata Macaw Project they have shown that southeast area of ​​Peru has high abundance of bird and mammal clay licks and licks bird anywhere in South America and probably the world (Brightsmith et al. 2009, Lee et al. 2009). These licks are visited by several species of large animals such like macaws, parrots, tapirs, monkeys (Alouatta and Ateles), peccaries, deer, their quest to consume ground as a supplement to your diet (Kyle 2001 Brightsmith et al. 2009). In itself, big cats and other predators also frequent much in their attempt get prey. Many of these animals are important tourist attractions of the region as well as important sources of animal protein for local people (Redford 1992). In turn, many of these species play important roles in the ecosystem, such as seed dispersal and regulate populations through predation. Our studies also show that the vast majority of collpas Mother of God They are being exploited by humans (Brightsmith et al. 2009). This puts us in an excellent position from the point of view of conservation, it gives us the collpas opportunity to study in their natural state and be able to decide in a better way which we need to preserve its pristine form and in which we can manage sustainably for ecological and anthropological benefit. Due to the importance of collpas for the area and the fact that is the Mother of God epicenter of global abundance and diversity of licks, it is imperative that the SERNANP and other conservation agencies that have been working in the area have a protection plan and sustainable management and consider it within one of their highest priorities strategic. Moreover now, the urgency to monitor animal populations and their interactions are increased due to the completion of construction of the Highway Interoceanic. The fact collpas map in the Tambopata National Reserve (RNTAMB) and Bahuaja Sonene (PNBS) National Park allow specialists to plan strategies joint management and monitoring many of the licks itself as animal populations species “flags” that use them. The purpose of this project is to determine the abundance of clay licks in different sectors the reserve. For this, we present a mapping of the main collpas booking order to provide a base that would collpas possible to design a monitoring plan collpas larger, more used (of human animals), more at risk and more accessible. Objectives of the study
These are the objectives of the study according to our written work plan before the I study Peru Nature tour:
1. Make an inventory of the largest clay lick in the environment and PNBS RNTAMB for use in the management of the area to. Search river transects and unknown collpas area
b. Through interviews with park rangers, tour operators and people Local find, map and measure the largest clay lick area
2. To determine the relative abundance of clay licks in different sectors and RNTAMB PNBS to prioritize the study and management of them, using transects for a measure of the relative abundance of clay licks in the streams and rivers in the area.
3. To improve our scientific understanding of the licks of the reservation and the area general
to. Quantify that animals use to describe each lick the collpas features used by each taxa Peru Nature tour:
b. Analyze the distribution of licks in the area related to age soil formation, away from population centers and habitat type
4. Quantify Cup collpas use by people to. Quantify how many licks of each type are used for tourism
b. Quantify how many licks of each type are used by hunters
5. Make a map of distribution of licks in the reserve and adjacent areas
6. Make a list and map of collpas high priority for future monitoring
Methodology In general, two types of methodology for locating collpas was used in Selected areas Methodology Prior to the field trip Interview with residents of areas to go Short visits to the communities adjacent to the various rivers that are planned to be conducted inspect. During these visits, he met the older residents, hunters, rangers, researchers, etc. with the intent to place on a map of the area collpas these people knew.

  Peru Nature tour Methodology: field expeditions in search of collpas The main effort in the field work concentrated on tour the main rivers that They located in the Tambopata National Reserve and the Bahuaja Sonene National Park. Being
these: (1) Rio Heath, (2) Chuncho, (3) La Torre (4) Malinowski, (5) Blue (6) Tambopata. The total of rivers paths shown in Fig. 1. In general, each computer furrowed river from its mouth to where the water level allowed it. Due to the different geography river courses, methodology in each was not exactly the same. To search licks itself, it was determined as a starting point, the mouth of the river to trench and end point where the river was still navigable or to the border with the Puno department (Jurisdiction of the contract does not cover the department of Puno). They determine the linear distance traveled (endpoint minus baseline in kilometers). Is distance was divided into 10 sections, provided that each of the sections was not less 5 km. I will use the Universal Transverse System UTM coordinates and Mercador Google Earth 5.0 program (2007). Overall, I plan to assess 10 and 10 transects River transects broken by river. For each transect river, was planned to walk 2 km of river banks on both banks of the river each way. River transects started in the last two kilometers of the corresponding stretch. To transects broken I was planned to go 1 km straight edge of ravine not navigable by section. I was planned traveling 5 transects broken on the right bank and 5 in the left margin, except in sections interspersed margins immediately contiguous: sections pairs on the right bank and odd sections on the left bank (or vice versa). In the event that was achieved not complete 1 km linear in the ravine covered tranche, the mileage is missing would run in the next leg broken the same bank of the river, or failing in the next and so on, with the 5km complete ultimate goal Broken linear paths to each bank of the river. During the furrowed, all existing on both sides of the river gorges registration order to assess when the end point, which met the requirements established pre (Non-navigable streams and measurable walk). In addition, streams that exclude: (1) were very short (according to local references) and not reach complete 1km linear or (2) were surrounded by dense forests of bamboo. The sought after collpas in Rio transects in many cases they used the boat due to the disadvantages that would arise when trying to including large walk edges and pending branches which prevented continue. If transects broken, obstacles into the forest and are skirted back the edge of the creek as close as possible past the obstacle. Showing up next the specific methodology performed on each river

Peru Nature tour Heath River Methodology :
(Based on methodologies Gabriela Vigo Trauco and modified by Aldo Ramirez) Collpas search for the Heath River, we proceeded to set the starting point conducted tour. “Heath River” was named the Heath River transect covered by the confluence of this river with the Mother River under God, border with Bolivia located at the margin Mother River right under God (starting point) to 60 linear kilometers from broken mouth to Sabaluyo (endpoint), located on the Peruvian side border with Bolivia. The linear distance between the starting point and end point was 60 km linear. We divided the distance 10 km linear sections 6 each. The establishment of the initial point, final and the sections was done using the Google Earth 5.0 program (2007). All transects River were placed in the last 2 km for the section. For transects broken, they were pre-assessed each of the 33 streams found on the left bank (Peruvian margin) in order to establish what could be traveled on foot. I was planned to walk 2km stretch tours only in the margin of the river to the Peruvian side (Left Bank): River transect.

In turn, 1 km from a broken line is crossed
only on the Left Bank, located inside the corresponding section: Broken transect. The topography of the river allowed for river transects in the pre-set points without drawbacks. All river transects were done walking. A total of 10 Broken transects were evaluated, including 2 mouths of lakes. The Broken selected were those easily accessible walking along the shore of these or the same runway; I do not differentiate between clearwater streams, black, white or broken stagnant or running water. Remove creeks where soil saturation and / or very short mouths of lakes not allowed to enter on foot or in the presence of bale forests entry made impossible. A total of 74 km of river sail, walking a total of 20 km on the left margin. So 10km same linear path of streams is on the left bank.

development. As part of AIDER’s mandate to achieve conservation and sustainable economic development of the area, a REDD+ 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 commercialization of cocoa. At full scale, the investment will produce at least 3,200 tone’s per annum of certified zero-deforestation organic and Fair-trade cocoa to empower the long-term financial and environmental sustainability of the area, its ecosystems and its population. Together, the AIDER and Anthelia REDD+ 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.
