PROTECTED NATURAL AREAS OF PERU

Peru, in a bid to conserve its natural surroundings, flora and fauna, has designed a series of mechanisms aimed at conserving the country's biological diversity

These efforts are channeled through the National System of Natural Protected Areas (SINANPE) and the state natural resources entity (INRENA). To date, Peru features a total of 63 natural areas or conservation units, covering approximately 14.04% of the country's territory.
