The reforestation program in Ucayali continued to work throughout 2019 and included planting 220 thousand new shihuahuaco and marupa trees on 305 hectares. The total area of our property dedicated to this effort currently stands at 1000 hectares. This new reforestation effort focused on developing seedlings with optimum characteristics, which increased the range of areas...
As part of on-going research work at Bosques Amazónicos BAM, we institutionalized the BAM science program to permanently assess biodiversity and environmental quality (flora, fauna and water sources) in the company’s areas of influence. This program, led by the engineer Walter H. Wust, director of BAM, is developed through an agreement with highly prestigious scientific...
The pressing need to find joint solutions to environmental conservation problems and reach global agreements in this regard are international priorities.
