In July of 2009 a team of socio-economic experts from the United States and Peru conducted a social asset inventory of the ancestral territory of the Maijuna indigenous people in northeastern Peru in order to identify patterns of social organization and opportunities for capacity building. Shortly thereafter, in October of 2009, another team of scientists conducted a rapid biological inventory of the area and its vegetation, plants, fishes, amphibians, reptiles, birds, medium-to-large mammals, and bats. Both arms of the project were intended to assess the region’s suitability for protection as a regional conservation area. The full report and results are provided in Spanish and English.
