AmazonEco and their team of researchers and conservationists have been working in the Peruvian Amazon for over 27 years. During this time AmazonEco’s team has conducted over 150 conservation and research expeditions with more than 1,000 students, professors, and researchers to remote wilderness areas of the Amazonian rainforest.

AmazonEco helped support the conservation efforts of local communities in the Yavari Miri and Samiria rivers, providing educational and health support to villagers.

Rubber boom period

AmazonEco continued with helping conserve the history of the Peruvian Amazon through the restoration of four historical boats, the rubber boom boat “Ayapua”, the naval boat “Clavero”, and two historic launches “Fitzcarraldo” and “Cahuapanas”.

AmazonEco operates in the Peruvian Amazon of Loreto, which extends over 382,000 km2 of rainforest. We are based in Iquitos, Peru and often have expeditions to the Yavari river and the Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve, among many other localities in Loreto (see map below).
