Maps of the Tamshiyacu-Tahuayo
The Tamshiyacu-Tahuayo Reserve was originally designated by the Peruvian government in 1991 to protect the range of the rare red uakari monkey, an orangutan-looking monkey with a bright red face. Amazonia Expeditions played a major role in the development of the reserve (Learn More Here). Subsequent scientific research has found one of the world’s richest variety of plants, amphibians, reptiles and birds. View a map of the Tamshiyacu-Tahuayo Reserve here
