Junglekeepers conserves threatened habitat in the vitally important Madre de Dios region of the Peruvian Amazon. The Las Piedras watershed is part of the Andes/Amazon hotspot—one of the most biodiverse and pristine areas on earth.

This forest is home to tens of millions of trees, numerous indigenous communities, and untold numbers of animal heartbeats. In recent decades new roads, illegal logging, poaching, and gold mining have begun to seriously degrade the ancient forest that is the source of life in this region.

Junglekeepers Rangers patrol and safeguard almost 30,000 acres of this incredible landscape.

HOW TO HELP

Ranger Program Costs are largely centered around Ranger compensation (salary, food and board). Additional costs for the program include trail maintenance, communication and reporting systems, boat transport, fuel and other minor expenses. The program also requires a one-time expense of a shelter construction and initial trail clearing per concession.

Our focus is to create an uninterrupted, protected conservation area stretching along the Las Piedras River.

This threatened ecosystem is incredibly diverse, pristine, and home to some of the last isolated tribes on earth.
