In the Amazon rainforest Peru has established a series of national parks and wildlife preserves to combat the threats from deforestation. The government is committed to preserving the Peru amazon jungle for future generations of its own people and the entire world. Hopefully the amazonas region will always be there for people to enjoy its beauty and as a home for creatures that live no where else.

The Peru jungle is located to the east of the mountainous Andean zone. The entire Amazon basin does not follow any national borders, covering a huge area of more than 2.5 million miles in South America. It is estimated to contain more than 400 types of mammals, 1,700 types of animals and 50,000 different types of plants. The residents of Peru recognize that the beauty and uniqueness of the amazonas region make it one of their biggest asset for tourism. Bringing in tourist dollars is a renewable source of income as opposed to logging which destroys the natural environment and is a one time benefit.

Amazon Rainforest Peru Climate

It is important that you take time to learn about the climate of Peru before you plan your trip, especially if you are headed to the rainforest. The dry season lasts from May to September when it gives way to the wet season that runs constantly from November to April. The rains are relentless and can cause major delays in travel through the Peru Amazon Jungle. It will also limit your opportunities to get out and see the forest.
