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 and guides– have earned him a place as the most important author of works on nature, culture and sustainable resource management in the country. Walter is the director of Wust Ediciones and WW Editores and is a member of the Directing Council of SERNANP, ACCA, IBC, Líderes+1 and CCERO. He is also the founder and face of the new Environmental Engineering and Management major at UPC. He holds a Bachelor of Forest Engineering from the Universidad Nacional Agraria La Molina with a specialization in forest management.
The BAM science program’s objective is to permanently assess the ecological diversity (flora, fauna, water sources) of the company’s areas of influence and to identify sustainable development opportunities for the area’s natural resources. Under Walter’s guidance, and with the cooperation assistance of prestigious scientific organizations such as Corbidi and PerúVerde, we will conduct important research to bolster knowledge and promote the biodiversity of the Amazon. Welcome Walter!
