Fossil Creek Wildlife Reserve

Fossil Creek Communal Reserve was created in May of 2016 ,it consists of the tribal lands of two native communities, Nuevo Union de Boyador and Roca Eterna. The communities realize their resources need to be managed, noting the scarcity of good forest products during low water season. Local authorities also recognize the importance of tourism for the sustainable development of their district. They have committed to be good stewards of their land and great hosts to international visitors in a deal designed to impulse the sustainable development of their villages and surrounding areas of the lower Amazon River region of Iquitos, Peru.
