TAHUAMANU PROVINCE :: PERU
A profusion of wildlife depends on Peru’s Madre de Dios region. But this 21 million-acre swath of Amazonian rain forest is increasingly threatened by deforestation. In agricultural Tahuamanu Province, for example, the rate of deforestation doubled between 2013 and 2016. To counter this trend, in 2017 WWF and Peruvian government agencies partnered with livestock farmers in Tahuamanu on a pilot project to increase productivity and decrease ecological impact.
