    Tambopata National Reserve has an area of ??274'690.00 hectares and is located in the districts of Inambari and Tambopata, Tambopata province in the department of Madre de Dios. This tropical humid forest works together with the local population (indigenous peoples), to conserve in a sustainable way the resources and ecological processes of the tropical humid forest (reserve). Tourism is an example of sustainable management in this area.

     

    It is also located contiguously to the Bahuaja Sonene National Park that surrounds it entirely to the south, forming with it a highly important protection unit for conservation. The existing connectivity with the protected natural areas of the department (the Amarakaeri Communal Reserve and the Alto Purús and Manu national parks) and those of neighboring Bolivia, supports the existence of the proposed Vilcabamba - Amboró biological corridor.

     

    The Tambopata river basin in the reserve has one of the highest rates of biological diversity in the world. The Tambopata National Reserve is located in the middle and lower zone of this basin, neighboring the city of Puerto Maldonado. Among its most common ecosystems are swamps, aguajales, pacales and riverine forests, whose physical characteristics allow local people to take advantage of natural resources.

     

    Tambopata National Reserve houses mainly aquatic habitats that are used as stopovers for more than 40 species of transcontinental migratory birds. The national reserve protects important species considered in danger of extinction and offers tourism a privileged destination for observing the diversity of flora and wild fauna.

    In the buffer zone are the native communities of Infierno, Palma Real and Sonene, belonging to the ethnolinguistic group Ese ’Eja; and the Kotsimba native community of the Puquirieri ethnolinguistic group.
