The Pacaya Samiria National Reserve is the second largest natural protected area in Peru
It is the largest flooded forest in South America and one of the most important refuges of life in our Amazon. It has been recognized as a management model for guaranteeing the sustainable use of its resources. Its name comes from the Pacaya and Samiria rivers, and it is located in Loreto. It is made up of the provinces of Requena, Alto Amazonas and Ucayali. To the north it borders the Marañón River, to the south the Ucayali River and to the east the Huallaga River.
This humid, tropical, floodable forest is an autonomous ecosystem that is a refuge for important wildlife, that is why PetroTal – as good neighbors – is very concerned about working for its conservation, care and protection.
PETROTAL'S COMMITMENT TO THE CONSERVATION OF THE RESERVE
We are committed to implementing an ambitious Environmental Offsetting Plan for Pacaya Samiria National Reserve. Therefore, together with the SERNANP ( Servicio Nacional de Áreas Naturales Protegidas por el Estado or the National Service of Natural Areas Protected by the State), we have signed an inter-institutional cooperation agreement in order to strengthen the effective management of the Reserve and promote sustainable activities for the benefit of the localities of the region, prioritizing the strengthening of strategies and actions for the conservation of this natural protected area.
We have entered into an inter-institutional cooperation agreement with SERNANP and are committed to the generation of value and responsible development of the Bretaña project.
This agreement includes offsetting activities such as:
- Implementation of a monitoring and control plan.
- Promotion of participatory management to strengthen the activities of basin leaders in the management of the area’s resources.
- Promotion of sustainable economic activities in favor of the localities in the area.
