Peru establishes 3.3 million acre national park in the heart of the Amazon

The extent of the biodiversity of the land will likely never be known, but in just the last 15 year,s The Field Museum’s research on the area has led to the discovery of 20 species of previously unseen plants and animals. The area is home to birds, mammals of all sorts, frogs and reptiles, and countless plant and insect species that will no longer face harm by growing industries.

Previous threats to the land’s integrity – threats that continue against other areas – include logging operations, coca plantations, mining, and oil drilling industries.
