Amazonia Expedition

Amazonia Expeditions is a company focused on ecotourism that has strategies and programs for the conservation of the ecosystem and for the improvement of the surrounding communities. Since 1981, it is the only tour company with legal permission to operate with access to the Peru Reserve "Tamishiyacu-Tahuayo".

Together with the native community and a government conservation agency, they manage the ARCTT, which consists of 450,000 hectares. Therefore, they are considered as the main force behind the reserve.

Approximately 2 years ago, a study of the density of the jaguar was carried out, using a dozen photo-trap cameras (Reconyx PC 800 Hyperfire Pro). After a period of 8 months to 2 years, they stopped working, despite attempts to fix them. However, due to the climatic conditions of the area, the cameras do not have the duration they can have in other ecosystems and the community currently lacks functional phototraping cameras to achieve a successful fauna census. Amazonia Expeditions is looking for support to revive the wildlife census project.

WHAT HAS BEEN DONE

With the aim of rescuing this initiative and achieving the continuation of wildlife monitoring, Animal Karma donated 3 camera traps ("Bushnell 14MP Trophy Cam HD") to support the census.
