Our company supports a conservation project that protects 100 has of rainforest in the Manu Biosphere Reserve at one of the most vulnerable and critical locations for this purpose due to the high pressure towards the natural resources that are generated by the nearby villages at much greater scale due to migration on the last decades.
In Fact, we feel safe saying that we guarantee the observation of monkeys, sloths, Caymans, blue and gold macaws and other hundreds of birds, fishes, as well as a variety of plants such as, helicons, among others, all of them in their natural habitat.
Peru is a country with few laws against animal abuse. Because of this, not promoting hunting and life in captivity of animals is our slogan. For an animal in captivity to be seen by tourists, means a cruel process. They have to live in small spaces, coexisting with their mud and without comforts to lie down, play, jump, hunt.
The animals in captivity live less time and go through unnatural pain and adversities. A clear example is the wild monkeys that live in communities of the same species. When we have tried to introduce a rescued copy that we have taken from Iquitos, the group no longer accepts it. And this also happens with other species such as the sloth that clings and hugs its tree until humans make it fall from several meters high to take a picture; or the macaws that pose with tourists as pets because they have wings cut off and cannot fly, in addition to changing their natural diet.
At Guadalupe Reserve, we reject any aforementioned practices and encourage the non-interruption of wildlife in the area.
