Conservation-based birding in the heart of the Amazon rainforest

05 August 2022 (148 visits)

The Private Conservation Area we maintain and protect around our comfortable eco-lodge, combined with our privileged access to our giant immediate neighbor –Tambopata National Reserve- makes us the perfect destination for birdwatching enthusiasts.

 

More than 1800 bird species have been recorded within Peru’s national territory, and of those almost 650 species had been sighted in the Tambopata forests where we live and work. The extensive forest, wetland, river and lake systems of Tambopata are what make it the ideal home for such an enormous number of birds, including 40 transcontinental migratory species.

 

With its massive harpy eagles and the tiniest of hummingbirds, and of course its uniquely accessible macaw and parrot clay licks, Tambopata really is a paradise for anyone who finds all birds beautiful and fascinating!

 

The forests we help to protect are home to an extraordinary diversity of birds, representing one-third of all the bird species known to inhabit Peru, which nationwide boasts the world’s second- greatest diversity of birdlife, after Colombia. In our role as the custodians of these species’ varied habitats, as part of our conservation work we welcome both enthusiastic nature lovers and specialist birdwatchers to our eco-lodge, so that they can explore our forests, rivers, lakes and wetlands in the company of our locally-based, experienced naturalist guides, in search of the bird diversity that Tambopata’s ecosystems support.

 

The rainforest ecosystems where these birds and thousands of other species of fauna and flora flourish are highly diverse and complex. The environmental impacts of human activities have been well-publicized for many decades, while good news stories like our own conservation-based ecotourism and ecoadventure initiative rarely make the headlines.

 

At Tambopata Ecolodge, for more than 30 years our goal has been to protect the integrity of our own small corner of the Amazon basin, and to conserve it for the future. However, the threats affecting the many different ecosystems of the Peruvian Amazon continue to grow. These range from deforestation for agriculture to illegal logging and goldmining. Such activities bring catastrophic consequences for the plants and animals of the Amazon, and mean that ecofriendly, environmentally conscious initiatives like our own offer one of the few proven ways through which all that matchless biodiversity can continue to thrive.

What your rainforest visit means

In Peru ecotourism has helped make it possible to create national reserves and save the forests of the Amazon basin from destruction. By implementing our ecotourism-based conservation model (see our video), we are ensuring the forests will be around for future generations to appreciate. Pioneering projects like Tambopata Ecolodge, which was established in 1991, serve as a conservation model, by showing how responsible ecotourism can support conservation initiatives.
