t is by now common knowledge that
Peru is one of the richest countries in the world in terms of tourist resources, not just because of the priceless archaelogical remains that abound in our country, but also because of its share of the Amazon River basin.
This zone, known as "Amazonia", is considered the lung of our planet, and the Peruvian part is considered to be one of the parts of the jungle best preserved in its "virgin" state. This unspoilt state and its location in the tropics, makes the
Peruvian Amazonia particularly biodiverse, holding as it does over 70% of the living species of the planet. This infinity of species of flora and fauna, many of which are not found anywhere else, live together in totally unique diversity in the Peruvian Amazonia.
The natural riches of our country, which is also an important natural resource for humankind, is only nown to a few scientists and, obviously, much less by those of us simply curious about our environment.
For this reason we've put together the contents of this web site about the Natural World of Peru, which we are pleased to offer to you, our visitors.
Not only have we put information about nature at your disposal, but also supporting illustrations, and information about specialized tourism, such as Photo Safaris, Birdwatching, Orchids, General Botany, Insects, Anthropology , Waterfalls, Invertebrates etc.
