Reserva Comunal Tamshiyacu-Tahuayo
Reserva Comunal Tamshiyacu-Tahuayo Review
Covering approximately 4,144 square km (1,600 square miles), the Reserva Comunal Tamshiyacu-Tahuayo is larger than the state of Rhode Island. It comprises an array of ecosystems that includes seasonally flooded forests, terra firma forests, aguaje palm swamps, and oxbow lakes. Taken together, these are home to almost 600 bird species: cocoi herons, wire-tailed manakins, and blue and gold macaws among them. It also has rare primate species, such as saki and uakari monkeys. The government manages the reserve in coordination with local people (they still hunt and fish here, but have reduced their impact on its wildlife). Local eco-lodges provide employment and support education and healthcare in those communities, which has strengthened their interest in protecting the environment.
