WHAT WE DO
FZS Peru provides support for conservation of the natural protected areas through funding, project implementation, protection activities and surveillance of the natural protected areas. Our team also works with biological monitoring, sustainable management of natural resources, environmental education, management of sustainable tourism and protection of isolated indigenous communities.
All of these activities are registered in inter-institutional agreements with entities of the national and regional governments like the Ministry of Environment, Ministry of Culture, the Peruvian authority of natural protected areas (SERNANP) and regional governments, among others. In the same way, we work collaboratively with local governments, management committees and other allied institutions.
To efficiently carry out our work and prepare ourselves for the challenges of a changing world, we have undertaken rigorous strategic processes. As a result of these planning exercises, we have outlined our action plan, which is defined by five lines of action:
LINES OF ACTION
Through our projects we seek to achieve continuity and improve the control and protection of the natural protected areas by providing infrastructure, equipment and maintenance such as training and patrol support.
We aim to have the protected areas in general and the specific species with which we work recognized as important components of the national conservation strategy and on high standards for biodiversity protection in the long term.
Within the framework of support provided to Ministry of Culture , we reinforce the protection of the protected areas considered home to indigenous population in situations of isolation or initial contact.
Since 2002, the FZS Perú has contributed to the environmental education and formal education of the resident communities of the natural protected areas of the southeastern regions of Peru.
