How can we all contribute to saving the rainforests?

01 April 2022 (444 visits)

The Tambopata forests where we decided more than thirty years ago to build our eco-lodge and to establish our own, government-supported private conservation area, are among the most biologically diverse places on Earth.


We created our ecotourism-based conservation initiative in order to preserve this small corner of the Peruvian Amazon where we live and work, a pristine area famous for its incomparable macaw clay licks. Today, our Tambopata Ecolodge Private Conservation Area and our great neighbor, Tambopata National Reserve, form part of a vast area of forest that is the biggest protected nature reserve in South America. Together with the Bahuaja-Sonene National Park in Peru, and the Madidi National Park across the border in Bolivia, Tambopata is part of an enormous mosaic of protected ecosystems, in which Amazon flora and fauna are able to thrive, in spite of the many threats to their existence.


At Tambopata Ecolodge, we believe that carefully managed tourism is the only truly effective way to stem the tide of destruction which in South America sees vast tracts of tropical forest removed each year. As ever, the many threats to the flora and fauna of the tropical forests of Peru and the other seven South American countries that share parts of the Amazon basin remain very real.


That is why we remain fully committed to nature conservation through responsible tourism. By protecting the forests under our care from multiple threats in the form of logging, land invasion for agriculture, and even gold mining, our aim is to demonstrate to the people of Peru that the forests will be worth more to our national and local economy for generations to come, if they are left to flourish!

Of course, when for many local people illegal activities such as logging or mining can seem to offer their only chance of emerging from poverty, it is not easy to convince them that conservation is the way forward.


And that is why your visit is so important! Travel has been difficult in recent years, but when you can, be sure to add visiting the Peruvian rainforest to your bucket list! Walking in a rainforest or traveling by boat on remote rivers offer the opportunity to see some of the world’s most elusive species of fauna, and to appreciate up close the planet’s most extraordinary flora, while at the same time supporting initiatives that help save the rainforest for us all, just by being here with us and enjoying it for yourself!

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.
