MANU

RAINFOREST AND WILDLIFE

Manu, located in the southeast area of Peru, is one of PICTURE MANU PICTUREthe largest parks in South America. The area of the park encompasses parts of the Andean department of Cusco and the jungle department of Madre de Dios. Manu protects 2 million hectares (4.5 million acres) of a territory rich in flora and fauna species, and a variety of habitats including high Andes, cloud forests, and lowland tropical rain forests. UNESCO officially recognizes this natural paradise as a world heritage site. In 1977, they designated Manu as a World.

MANU PICTURE MANUManu is a Biosphere Reserve because it contains the best existing example of biodiversity in protected areas of rain forest, as well as endemic areas of cloud forest. Humans have altered the majority of forests in the world. Fortunately, Manu has remained intact and untouched by civilization.

In The Manu, we can observe a variety of animals in theirPICTURE MANU PICTUREnatural habitats, including: Giant Otters (Pteronura brasilensis), Black Caiman (Melanosuchus niger), the majestic Jaguar (Panthera onca), the strange Spectacled Bear (Tremarctos ornatus), the Tapir (Tapirus terrestris), the Ocelot (Felis pardalis), 13 species of primates, and an estimated of one thousand species of birds including species of seven Macaws (Ara sp.).

PICTURE MANU PICTUREManu also contains 10% of the world plant species, including several species of figs and palms, as well as countless species of medicinal plants that scientists are currently cataloguing. A single hectare of forest in Manu can have up to 220 species of trees, while a hectare of temperate forest in Europe or North America may only have 20 species of trees. The Manu National Park is probably the most biological diverse and protected park on the planet.
