In 2019, we planted 220 thousand new shihuahuaco and marupa trees on 305 hectares. Currently, our commercial area covers 1000 hectares. This reforestation effort focused on developing seedlings with optimum characteristics by increasing the number of areas from which our species originate to strengthen BAM’s forest genetics program. All of the stages of the planting...
The aim of BAM’s science program is to conduct on-going research to assess the biodiversity and quality of environmental resources (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 organizations such as...
The world needs cooperative solutions and global agreements to fight climate change. This year, the UN Climate Change Conference (COP25) was held in Madrid.  Although no agreements were reached with regard to article 6 of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, the dialogue at the conference and the interventions of both government and...
As part of a new communications strategy at Bosques Amazónicos BAM, which seeks to promote the recovery and conservation of the Peruvian Amazon and the planet, we launched our first BAM institutional video. This video focuses on the program to recover degraded areas in Campo Verde, Ucayali. We would like to invite you to learn...
Every year, BAM celebrates Forestry Week at Campo Verde in Ucayali. As part of the activities organized in Pucallpa, we invited different authorities, neighboring communities and employees to learn about BAM’s programs and to promote sustainable cooperation in the region. During this celebration, different activities were held: Training for neighboring hamlets (Agua Blanca, Tierra Roja,...
Cesar Sabogal, from CIFOR at FAO, and Jorge Chavez, forestry leader at BAM, published the experience to reforest with native species, Campo Verde BAM, on the international portal “Forests” under the study “Restoring Degraded Forest Land with Native Tree Species: The Experience of Bosques Amazónicos in Ucayali, Peru. This in-depth study provides information on the...
We are happy to announce that Walter Wust has joined the Bosques Amazónicos BAM team as the Director and leader of the company’s science program. Walter has more than thirty years of experience leading programs to assess biological diversity along the coast and in the Andes and Amazon of Peru.   His publications–more than 600 books...
The genetic improvement program at Bosques Amazónicos BAM contributes to the recovery and conservation of highly threatened native species. This is the case of the shihuahuaco (Dipteryx micrantha), one of the most attractive species in the international market due to its hardness and quality of its wood as well as its excellent capacity to resist...
The team from Bosques Amazónicos BAM traveled to Costa Rica to receive training in the most advanced processes for genetic improvement as part of the cooperation agreement with the Instituto Técnico de Costa Rica (TEC). Dr. Olman Murillo, representative of TEC, recently visited the BAM’s operating area in Ucayali to study the plantation and train...
To strengthen the value of the forest, BAM, in cooperation with the Instituto Tecnológico de Costa Rica (TEC)─ one of the world’s leading institutions in cloning of forest species─ is rolling out a cutting-edge program to improve the forest genetics of our native species. This program seeks to clone the highest quality specimens from our...
