The New York Times: Peru Moves to Protect 'One of the Last Great Intact Forests'

Today, there are a number of new national parks and reserves in Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and Chile. Collectively, these parks mark an effort to preserve wildlife in one of the most biodiverse regions of the world. This recent article by The New York Times, written by JoAnna Klein, examines Peru's Yaguas National Park, which was established this past February. In this article, Klein describes how the park was established with leadership from Peru's indigenous community. Klein also discusses the rich variety of species that can be found in this rainforest, including approximately 300 species of fish and over 100 amphibious species. The article features gorgeous pictures of just a handful of these species, including a parrot snake (also known as the Amazonian palm viper), a Diaethria candrena butterfly, and an Enyalioides woodlizard.
