Wax Palm Mountain Forest Conservation in Amazonas Region
October 2008

The area is about the size of Zion National Park

In the Amazonas region of Peru near the city of Mendez, NCI staff members are diligently working to gain protected area status for the Wax Palm-Huamanpata Mountain Tropical Forest. This area is approximately 150,000 acres, or about the size of Zion National Park, and funding has recently been received from a private donor to aid in the conservation of the area. Funds will be used primarily for reserve management including trail construction and signage, and for producing television spot advertisements promoting the conservation of the area. In addition, city groups and students of all ages will be able to participate in reforestation and conservation activities within the reserve, and political activities promoting conservation will take place within the city as well. Recent school and media events have brought a great deal of local attention to conservation here.
