In July of 2009 a team of socioeconomic experts from the United States and Peru conducted a social asset inventory of the ancestral territory of the Maijuna indigenous people in northeastern Peru in order to identify patterns of social organization and opportunities for capacity building. Shortly thereafter, another team of scientists conducted a rapid biological inventory of the area. Both arms of the project were intended to assess the region's suitability for protection as a regional conservation area.
