The Tambopata National Reserve was created with the purpose of protecting the flora, the wild fauna and the scenic beauty of the region. This tropical humid forest, works together with the population in order to sustainably conserve the resources of this reserve. Tourism is an example of sustainable management in this area.
TAMBOPATA NATIONAL RESERVE - PROGRAMS:
The Tambopata National Reserve is located south of the Madre de Dios River in the Tambopata and Inambari districts of the Tambopata province, Madre de Dios department; and its extension is 274 690.00 hectares. The presence of this important protected natural area seeks to conserve the flora, fauna and ecological processes of a sample of the tropical rainforest. Likewise, Tambopata generates conservation processes that ensure the sustainable use of natural resources and the landscape.
The Tambopata river basin has one of the highest rates of biological diversity in the world. The Tambopata National Reserve is located in the middle and lower zone of this basin, neighboring the city of Puerto Maldonado. Among its most common ecosystems are aguajales, swamps, pacales and riverine forests, whose physical characteristics allow local people to take advantage of natural resources.
It is also located contiguously with the Bahuaja Sonene National Park that entirely surrounds it to the south, forming with it a highly important protection unit for the country. The existing connectivity with the protected natural areas of the department (the Amarakaeri Communal Reserve and the Alto Purús and Manu national parks) and those of neighboring Bolivia, supports the existence of the proposed Vilcabamba - Amboró biological corridor.
The RNTMB is home to mainly aquatic habitats that are used as stopovers for more than 40 species of transcontinental migratory birds. The national reserve protects important species considered in danger of extinction and offers tourism a privileged destination for observing the diversity of flora and wild fauna.
In the buffer zone are the native communities of Palma Real, Sonene and Infierno belonging to the ethnolinguistic group Ese ’Eja; and the Kotsimba native community of the Puquirieri ethnolinguistic group.
