Amazonas Amazonas Conservation Initiative Peru


Amazonas Conservation Initiative is dedicated to science-based conservation of threatened wildlife and their habitats, and to sustaining positive human–environment interactions with indigenous people who call the rain forest Home.

We believe conservation success is defined by helping nature thrive so the people who depend on it live productive and sustainable lives.

It means a protected forest with old-growth trees, clean river water, and honoring the traditions of indigenous people so they may live in harmony with nature.

A guide to Peruvian Cryptids

Cryptozoology is a field of study that focuses on the search for and investigation of creatures whose existence is based on anecdotal or other non-scientific evidence. These creatures, often referred to as "cryptids," are typically not recognized by mainstream biology or zoology. Cryptozoologists aim to prove the existence of such animals through the collection of evidence, which can include eyewitness accounts, photographs, physical traces, and other forms of data.
