Biological Monitoring in Peru

Some pictures from our recent biological monitoring trip to the Jardines Angel del Sol Conservation Concession in San Martin, Peru. The seven and a half thousand hectare reserve is run by a group of local people from the villages of La Primavera, Libano and Santa Cruz. Thanks to a grant from the IUCN Netherlands and local NGO AMPA, the group has been able to buy more land to extend the reserve and to carry out these biological monitoring trips.

More photos soon!

Workshop in Peru

Yesterday NPC participated in a workshop with the Peruvian Forestry Service, the San Martin Regional Government and representatives of many local conservation areas. The Forestry Service is looking to improve the Peruvian governments response to the needs of local reserve administrators and is carrying out a series of workshops, this is the second that we have participated in, to hear recommendations from the different actors. We look forward to seeing the positive results on-the-ground!

Supporting Community Conservation

Thanks to a grant from the Rasmussen Family Foundation, we were recently very happy to be able to donate equipment necessary for conservation to two of the community conservation groups that we help in protect the reserves they manage.

We gave cameras, laptops, projectors, GPS units, memory cards and printers, to the local associations protecting the Gran Simacache and Jardines Angel del Sol Conservation Concessions in San Martin, Peru.

These protected areas cover a combined area of over 50,000 ha, it’s is thanks to donations like this that these small farming communities are able to protect the forests they depend on for survival as well as all the primates and other species living in them.

Please continue to support our work!

Environmental Education in Pucallpa

We are pleased to be able to continue our environmental education work in Pucallpa, Peru.

Here are some photos of today’s environmental education activities in the Jose Abelardo Quiñones González primary school in Pucallpa. Our good friend Kevin Arnold Huamán Huamani, with the help of Sandra Gonzales Delgado, have been doing activities in 4 classes and will continue this work in many more schools throughout the city for the next 3 weeks. NPC Peru is supporting this work, together with SERFOR and other institutions.

The activities included some wonderful drawing and colouring, as you can see here in the pictures.

Ocelot Rescue

Here is our latest rescue, an Ocelot that the authorities of Corral Quemado in Amazonas. He was seized from a trafficker and will stay with us until we can send him on to a good rescue centre.

Ocelots are nocturnal mammals that spend most of the day resting before coming out to hunt for a variety of prey at night. They can also swim and have been known to fish in rivers. Ocelots are currently threatened by habitat loss and wildlife trafficking.
