One Million Acre Conservation Area Recognized in Peruvian Amazon
May/June 2009

The greatest diversity of flora and fauna in the world

With the assistance of NCI’s Loreto, Peru office, the 1 million acre Tamshiyacu-Tahuayo Regional Conservation Area (RCA) located in a pristine section of the Peruvian Amazon has finally been recognized by the national government and signed into law by Peruvian President Alan Garcia. The region, which is about the size of Glacier National Park, is known to have the greatest diversity of flora and fauna in the world. The creation of the RCA was supported by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation with the help of a number of NGO’s and local communities. NCI is currently working with community members in the region to promote “productive conservation” practices which benefit local populations by increasing their economic income through the sustainable use of natural resources within the RCA.
