 Wildlife Survival Beyond Park Boundaries: the Impact of Slash-and-Burn Agriculture and Hunting of Mammals in the Tambopata, Peru. Finding a balance between strict protection and multiple use requires data on wildlife survival in human-managed ecosystems. We examined the habitat use and species composition of mammals 2 kg in size inhabiting an agroforest ecosystem neighboring a park in the Peruvian Amazon.

First, we recorded wildlife presence in fields, fallows, and forests within one settlement over a 9-month period. Then we monitored wildlife presence over 21 months in 42 fields across a 65-km transect, including remote and highly disturbed sites. We tested for correlations between the size and number of mammal species visiting fields and human activities measured at different scales. Hunting intensity more powerfully predicted the average biomass and
species diversity observed in fields than did vegetation disturbance. The number of commercial hunters in the surrounding community had a stronger impact than did the individual field owner’s hunting intensity. Large-bodied species appeared only in remote farms neighboring uninhabited areas in the reserve, indicating that undisturbed forests act as sources for wildlife dispersing into agricultural regions.

Farmers in these remote areas experience greater crop and livestock losses to wildlife, but by hunting large game they are able to offset losses with bushmeat gains. In more disturbed areas, crop losses exceeded bushmeat gains, although both occurred at negligible levels. Our case study suggests that large herbivores, large carnivores, and most primates are unlikely to persist in multiple-use zones in Amazonian forests unless hunting is effectively restricted. Even highly disturbed agroforests are not empty of wildlife, however, but are inhabited by a suite of adaptable, fast-reproducing species able to withstand human activity, armadillos [Dasypus novemcinetus], and red brocket deer [Mazama gauazoubira]). These “weedy” species may not be of immediate concern to conservation biologists, and they will not attract tourists. But they have both economic and ecological value and deserve to be taken into account in management decisions.

Then, we go back to the lodge to be given breakfast. Later, we take a next trip going to observe stunning flora and fauna of the Sandoval Lake Reserve.

We can appreciate monkeys, deer, wild boars, tapirs or spectacled bears, just to name a few. For lunch, we get back to the lodge. Afterwards, we have given some time off to rest or enjoy a bath in the Sandoval Lake (no worries, there are no piranhas or other danger animals during the day). Then, we board a canoe to cross the lake to a place where we can better appreciate a beautiful sunset above the lake! At 7 pm, we return to the lodge for dinner while waiting for the moonlight, a suitable time to go watching caimans again! You will have an overnight stay at the Maloka lodge.

Information: Refuge Amazon Sandoval Lake .

In the Amazon, you come back from a jungle hike or from swimming with the pink dolphins, and you are hot and sweaty and thirsty in the jungle trips. A crew member greets you with cold towels and cool juices made from exotic Amazon jungle fruits. Then you can head to your air-conditioned suite for a hot shower and a quick nap on the over-sized bed in the lodge. Next: a multicourse lunch in the dining room, while you watch the glorious, ever-changing scenery pass by. It is luxury at its finest. It is bliss.

Travelers who have visited almost every country find that Peru’s Pacaya Samiria National Park – as big as Belgium – is like nowhere else in the world. On a black water lake deep in the park, a group of bubble-gumpink-colored dolphins gracefully jump toward the passengers, ready to play. You can fish for sharptoothed piranha, and catch some. After a brief shower, a vast rainbow arcs overhead, filling the enormous sky with color. Later, you can hike back to an area where six-foot-wide Victoria Regia water lilies burst into bloom at twilight. It is one of life’s great travel experiences.

Quick Itinerary  4 days

 

 

MALOKA SANDOVAL LODGE – NATIVE FAMILY- ADVENTURE 5 DAYS / 4 NIGHTS

Day 1 . – Puerto Maldonado – Lake Sandoval Adventure – Maloka Sandoval Lodge .

Upon arrival to Puerto Maldonado, at the airport or bus station, one of our local guides will meet you and will transfer you to our office located in downtown where you will be able to re-pack and to leave the baggage that you won’t need for the tour.

We will start from the Tourist port (Puerto capitania) from where a motorized boat will take us 45 minutes downstream to the Sandoval port, the entrance to Lake Sandoval located inside the Tambopata National Reserve. To get to Lake Sandoval we will have to walk 3 Km. or about one hour (muddy in the wet season) to arrive at a small port from where we will take a rowing canoe. About half an hour of rowing will take us to Maloka Sandoval Lodge. Arriving at the lodge we will have a warm welcome with a flavorful tropical juice, and after a brief introduction to the lodge we will be able to take a rest in one of our comfortable rooms.

Equipped with a flashlight or head lamp we will take a night walk in the forest to search for the night monkey (Musmuqui), frogs, snakes and insects that are active during the night.

We will return to the Lodge for dinner and to spend the night.

Day 2.-  Sandoval Lake  Adventure – Brazil nut trail – Caiman search night .

Very early in the morning we will row around Lake Sandoval in a wooden canoe trying to see the giant river otters (the biggest in the world), one of the most important protected species in the lake and considered flagship species. Giant otters live in small and very territorial family groups and feeds on fish around the lake in the early morning. They can eat up to 4 kilos of fish a day.

We will return to the Lodge for the breakfast and a brief rest.

We will leave the lodge and we will go for a walk in the terra firme forest learning more about the medicinal plants and diurnal mammals such as monkeys, wild cats, peccaries and birds like toucans and macaws. We will also learn about the ecology of the Brazil nut tree or chestnut tree that is considered an umbrella species, because it helps to protect other flora and fauna of the region.

We will return to the Lodge for lunch and nap time.

In the afternoon we will take the canoe around Lake Sandoval again, this time to look for monkeys (cappuccinos, squirrels, red howler), herons, kingfishers, cormorants, and shanshos that live and feed in the forest around the lake. In the evening on our way back to the lodge, using our flashlights we will be able to see the reflection of the eyes of the black caiman that usually hunt at night along the shore of the lake. We will approach them to take photos and we will talk about their natural history. We will return to the Lodge for dinner and to spend the night.

Day 3. – Lake Sandoval – Palms Tree Clay – Flood Plain Forest – Tower.

We will get up very early to cross the lake Sandoval and to walk about 20 minutes to visit the Collpa de palmeras or palms clay lick. This is a special place where different species of macaws (blue and yellow, scarlet, red bellied, chestnut fronted) and parrots(yellow crowned, mealy, white bellied) meet to eat the dead wood of the palms trees that is rich in salts and minerals (calcium, sodium, potassium, aluminum, magnesium and iron). This is a very important mineral supplement and helps these birds with digestion and to counteract the bad effects of the toxins that they ingest feeding on un-ripe fruits.

We will return to the Lodge for the breakfast and a brief rest.

We will get ready cross Lake Sandoval by canoe to go to the floodplain forest. We will walk for approximately 2 hours and will see big trees more than 200 years old, like the Shihuahuaco (iron tree), Lupuna (kapok tree) and oje (medicinal ficus tree); trees that grow only in this type of forest.

We will return to the Lodge for lunch and nap time.

In the afternoon we will again explore the lake by canoe, but this time we will visit a 12-meters high tower that is located between the limit of the touristic area (2 Km.) and a refuge area (1 km). From the tower we will watch the sunset.

We will return to the Lodge for dinner and to spend the night.

Day 4. – Lake Sandoval  Reserve Nature .

After breakfast we will will leave the Tambopata National Reserve taking the same way back to Port Sandoval on the Madre de Dios River. From there, we will travel 10 minutes by boat downriver to visit an indigenous Machiguenga family to learn about their customs and spend time with them. Afterwards, we will go to our second lodge where you will be able to relax in your comfortable room.

We will meet again for lunch and have time for a nap.

In the afternoon, we will visit Monkey Island where you can observe two different species of capuchin monkeys, the brown capuchin monkey and the white fronted capuchin monkey.

We will return to the lodge for dinner and to spend the night.

Day 5. – Lake Sandoval – Adventure – Puerto Maldonado – Airport.

After breakfast we will go to the canopy walk-way. We will climb up to a platform on a tower over 27 meters high; from there we will cross the 89 meter long canopy walk-way to another platform at a height of 37 meters. There we will prepare for the Zip-line and for an extreme adrenaline rush. We will put on our protective gear (harness, helmet, gloves) before jumping out and sliding down a 190 meter long cable in few seconds, flying like a bird.

We will return to Puerto Maldonado. After re-packing your luggage, the guide will take you to the airport.
