Travel Life – Peru 5days.- Reserve Tambopata National Park Bahuaja Sonene (PNBS) was created in 1996 with the objective of protecting representative ecosystems of the subtropical Amazonian biogeographic provinces and subtropical yunga – Amazon Wildlife. Later, in 2000, the territory of the old Pampas del Heath National Sanctuary, representative of the formation palm savannah was incorporated. Tambopata Park maintains areas of climatic conditions and diverse vegetation – Travel Life Peru.

Without its buffer zone, the PNBS occupied areas belonging to seven different areas of life – Wildlife Amazon. The wide variety of forests PNBS can be summarized in three main formations: low jungle, savannah and palm yungas – Travel Life Peru.

Floor.- jungle forests are characterized by stand at less than 800 m high, in a rainy environment and a topography dominated by relatively smooth plains and hills – Amazon Wildlife.

The yungas.- are tall forests, moist evergreen located on the east side of the Andes, between 800 and 3600 meters.

Savannah palmeras.- presents a very different environment to those described above, dominated by flat expanses of herbaceous and presence of palm trees and shrubs – Amazon Wildlife.

The Río Tambopata and the Cerros del Távara (Távara Mountains). Although already famous for its Explorer’s Inn Reserve and other research and ecotourism camps on the lower part of the river, the area to the east and south of the Río Tambopata is mostly a large and diverse wilderness, encompassing many distinct habitats of the lower ridges of the Andes and upper Amazonian plain. It has had little recent human disturbance and is of enormous conservation importance especially in context with the adjacent Río Madidi region of Bolivia and the Manu region to the north – Amazon Wildlife.

Life in a warehouse Biodiversity Tambopata

The three main plant formations PNBS bear a unique biodiversity and long life. Savannah palm trees, presents particular flora and fauna that are not found in Peru, outside the PNBS -Travel Life. Examples are the maned wolf alive (Chrysocyon brachyurus) and marsh deer alive (marsh deer), two species of large mammals for which the park is the only refuge in the country – Travel Life.

Lowland forests are widely known for maintaining a wide variety of flora and fauna – Amazon Wildlife. Several hypotheses, not incompatible, have been set forth to explain this diversity Wildlife. The most accepted include specialization of plants and animals to very specific niches alive mechanisms that prevent the growth of plants of the same species very close to each other and various mechanisms that favor the existence of species in low densities – Amazon Wildlife. 57.5% of mammal species (. Pacheco et al 2009) and 43% of birds registered in Peru is in this environment of Amazon Wildlife, which gives an idea of ​​the great biological diversity that has – Travel Life Peru.

Yungas, meanwhile, include various types of vegetation arranged in several altitudinal – Travel Life Peru. Because of its orographic complexity, yungas They have a variety of microclimates and numerous landforms such as rivers and mountain formations that serve barriers to limit the spread of many species of plants and animals. This limitation of the dispersion, in turn, favors the existence of endemic species and varieties, restricted to relatively small areas and well adapted to particular environmental conditions – Travel Life. It is believed that the wide range of altitudes of yungas made these a haven of biodiversity in ancient episodes of climate change Amazon Wildlife. So while the extensive relatively flat areas of lowland suffered more or less homogeneous temperature and humidity changes, those changes are manifested differently way along the Yungas – Travel Life Peru. During glacial periods, vegetation adapted to high areas and wildlife associated with it would simply come down to lower levels, while lowland species, suffering Dryness in their environment, they could have found refuge in some valleys of the Yungas, holders of special microclimates in Amazon Wildlife.

Similarly, during interglacial periods or environmental warming, species adapted to typical lowland climates they could have found refuge in the gradient of climates yungas present. This last aspect is particularly important against the current climate changes, showing the Yungas as a resilient environment, able to offer shelter to environmental changes to flora and fauna that inhabit it – Amazon Wildlife.


Peru is a signatory to the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES). CITES aims to ensure that international trade in specimens of wild animals and plants does not threaten their survival – Wildlife. This regulation is carried out by Management Authorities, in coordination with the Scientific Authority. Today, CITES accords varying degrees of protection to more than 30,000 species of fauna and flora worldwide – Travel Life.

Management Authorities issue permits and certificates for the marketing of specimens without endangering the survival of the population – Wildlife, while the Scientific Authority provides scientific advice for requests for CITES permits and also for commercial and political issues – Travel Life.

Likewise, in order to support the work of the Management and Scientific Authorities, are the enforcement bodies, who from their skills, take measurements and perform actions that serve as input for the control and elimination of trade in species of flora and wildlife that do not have the proper permits, ensuring that the export or import not constitute a danger to the survival of the species in Peru – Amazon wildlife.

In this regard, in order to facilitate the work through rapid identification of wildlife species distributed in Peru and included in CITES, it is important to have an updated document containing the list of them in Peru – Amazon Wildlife .

This list is the result of the updated “List of Wildlife Species Peruana in CITES” (MINAM, 2011), a document that includes wildlife with distribution in Peru and included in the Appendices of the CITESM ; as well as their review with specialists in different branches – Amazon Wildlife.

Such updating has allowed us to handle the identification of 469 species of wildlife, including terrestrial and aquatic species distribution in Peruvian territory – Willdife. This update is based on the general and updated literature review of wildlife species of Peruvian distribution. In addition, these results were corroborated with the provisions of Annex 3 CoP16 Doc. 43.1 (Rev. 1), which reports on new taxonomic changes to CITES and adoptions of new species in the Appendices by the statements after the sixteenth Conference of the Parties to CITES (Hyderabad, India, 2013) – travel life.

As in the previous edition, the review led to the elimination of some species in this list of wildlife; similarly, the update has included new species, such as the inclusion in the Appendices of the genus Carcharhinus and Sphyrna. Special mention the new changes in the class Amphibia – Travel Life.

Peru is a privileged country, which has a lot of unique biomes in the world and has comparative advantages worldwide. In this line and parallel to the high population growth, currently the biodiversity of wildlife is constantly pressed, causing the decline of wild populations and habitat degradation of life.

Trafficking and illegal trade in wild flora and fauna are considered to be the third type of illicit business world’s most lucrative after arms smuggling and drug trafficking in travel; illegal would amount to US $ 20 billion dollars annually, equivalent to about 5% of the volume of drug trafficking with travel (Interpol, 2008) and in which various actors in society are involved in a gear starting from communities wildlife near to the end buyer. This situation has generated that countries establish laws for protection and control of wildlife, especially in the second half of the last century – Amazon Wildlife.

Such domestic laws, were established in the framework of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES), ie since 1975. CITES has proven to be one of the most effective tools to strengthen collaboration international levels to conserve wildlife, so that the pressure on the most vulnerable to international trade plants and animals has been reduced considerably. However, in order to achieve further consolidation of this mechanism it is necessary linkages with other international conventions (Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals (CMS), Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD)) are strengthened and Scientific authorities (International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN)), to be more effective and achieve political support and civil society – Amazon Wildlife.

Finally, it should be noted that the list of species Wildlife Peruvian included in the Appendices of CITES, is an important step in strengthening the Convention in the country step and this should result in the consolidation of conservation policies of native wildlife of Peru – amazon Wildlife

Background of Wildlife – Travel Life:

International trade in specimens of wild animals has caused the population reduction to several species close to extinction of wildlife critical levels. So that the international community chose, from 1975 on the control of trafficking in endangered species through CITES. The Convention has proved to be quite effective in relation to that control of wildlife, as international cooperation has been crucial to travel to the Amazon.

The Convention Appendices or handles three categories, with Appendices I and II the strictest – Amazon Wildlife:

Appendix I includes all species threatened with extinction that are or may be affected by trade. Trade in specimens of these species must be subject to particularly strict regulation in order not to endanger further their survival and allowed only under exceptional circumstances your life – Wildlife Amazon.

Appendix II. a) includes all species not at present threatened with extinction may become so unless trade in specimens of such species is subject to strict regulation in order to avoid utilization incompatible with their survival or life . b) other species affected by trade with his life, which must be subject to regulation in order to allow effective monitoring of trade in the species to which paragraph refers to).

Appendix III. It contains those species proposed by some of the countries party to a special regulation to be in danger of life or threatened within their jurisdiction. Cooperation between States Parties is necessary to protect these species and to achieve adequate control of their trade. So far Peru has not requested the CITES Secretariat to include any wildlife species in Appendix III.
