New Photos Reveal the Beauty of the Amazonas Region of Peru October 2010
The Amazonas Region of Peru is an area of striking beauty and contrasting landscapes. Here, NCI is working together with local governments and organizations to carry out a number of projects such as the creation of a regional system of conservation areas, the creation of the 17,000 acre Tilacancha Private Conservation Area, which protects the water source for the city of Chachapoyas, the promotion of native Amazon fish farms to increase nutrition, employment, and sustainable income and the creation of a private conservation area to protect a globally unique 25,000 acre palm forest. Thanks to professional photographer, Alexander (Sasha) Vasiljev, who recently volunteered with NCI, a collection of stunning and beautiful photos of the region is now available. Please enjoy the photos here.
