Defensor de la Jungla

Pocos lugares en Sur América son tan remotos y salvajes como la región Madre de Dios en el Amazonas peruano. Esta región se encuentra donde la Cordillera de los Andes colinda drásticamente con el valle fluvial del Amazonas en el sureste de Perú. El escarpado contraste entre las montañas y las junglas de las tierras bajas producen una comunidad única de plantas y animales, un epicentro de biodiversidad que no es posible encontrar en ningún otro lugar del mundo.Sin embargo, este ecosistema está en peligro. Nuevas carreteras atraviesan la selva y han abierto lo que era una impenetrable jungla al consumo humano. Grandes tramos de bosque primario están siendo talados y destruidos ilegalmente para recolectar madera alterando el paisaje. Cazadores furtivos recorren la selva matando en exceso y aun después de 500 años la minería de oro continua contaminando grandes tractos de jungla.
