Alliance for Research and Conservation in the Amazon
Our mission is to protect the Las Piedras watershed, an important rainforest and river system in the southeastern Peruvian Amazon.
Since its creation in 2015, ARCAmazon’s Las Piedras Amazon Center (LPAC) has hosted thousands of volunteers, students and tourists in the remote Las Piedras watershed. Not only do our visitors get to learn about the incredible rainforest ecosystem, they also become conservationists through their financial contributions that are exchanged for their stays.
100% of the income generated by LPAC is used to maintain the protection of LPAC’s 4,460-hectare concession and it’s growing force of local staff. From forest rangers, to cooks, to guides… LPAC employs ex-loggers, ex-miners, ex-hunters, alleviating pressure from the rainforest and opening doors into a sustainable and responsible forest use future.
