About this book

Language: English

2017 marked the 40th anniversary of the Manu Biosphere Reserve in Peru, and the 30th anniversary of its designation as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In this book, experts and connoisseurs of Manu coming from a wide range of disciplines, guide the reader through the huge, almost untouched rain forests of Madre de Dios.

Zoologists and botanists, as well as ethnologists, have only the highest praise when they speak of Many. But how can this area best be protected for the future? This is a question about which experts do no always share the same opinions. The preparation of this book led to an intense exchange of views among the authors, all of whom have been closely connected with Manu for years, or even decades, through research, conservation or working for the benefit of the local population. This diversity of views and approaches is reflected in their writings, and this book thus provides not only exciting insights into one of the largest treasure troves of nature on the planet, but also into the dilemma of linking conservation and development.

This book, which was conceived and direction by the Frankfurt Zoological Society (FZS), was prepared in close collaboration with Peru's National Service of Natural Protected Areas (Sernanp). For almost three decades, Sernanp and the FZS have worked side by side to protect Manu. The book also provides insights into the longstanding partnership between the two institutions and their successful efforts. The Peruvian publisher Apus Graph Ediciones has brought great passion and professionalism to the project, and the most outstanding photographers have provided unique images.
