Images of Paradise: the Allpahuayo-Mishana National Reserve (Spanish English) Back

The Peruvian Amazon Research Institute (IIAP from its Spanish initials), committed to sustainable development, the management of natural resources and the conservation of biological diversity, places at their disposal this compilation of photographs of the Allpahuayo-Mishana National Reserve, taken by our researcher José Alvarez Alonso. This is merely a small sample of the extraordinary wealth of plants and animals harboured by this protected area, which thanks to its proximity to Iquitos and its accessibility, has become an exceptional setting for environmental education, recreation and tourism.

The reserve was created in 1999, based on a proposal made by IIAP, institution involved from the beginning in its management and in supporting local communities through various conservation and developmental projects. IIAP hopes that this book will contribute to the dispersion of this unique natural heritage, so that the Amazonian and non-Amazonian population value more that which is the basis of their livelihood, as well as being their greatest asset for the future: biodiversity.
