About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Spanish

The Kampankis Mountains are a knife-thin ridge in northern Peru that rises 1,435 meters above the surrounding Amazon lowlands. For three weeks, a group of researchers explored both the biological diversity and cultural values of the Cerros de Kampankis landscape, with the aim of promoting the long-term conservation of the area by the local Awajun and Wampis indigenous peoples.

Field Museum and Peruvian scientists recorded over 1,700 species of plants, fishes, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals, including twenty-five species that appear to be new to science. Peru: Cerros De Kampankis is presented in Spanish and English, and includes conservation recommendations, a technical report on the biological and social findings, appendices, and an executive summary in Wampis and Awajun.
