In-Person Photo Exhibit: A Changing Amazon
The Embassy of Peru and Amazon Conservation have partnered to bring together this exhibit on climate change and conservation solutions in the Amazon basin. The southwest Amazon– where the Andes mountains meet the Amazon rainforest– harbors the greatest diversity of wildlife on the planet is the birthplace of the waters that feed the Amazon River basin. Elevations range from 150 to 5,6500 meters above sea level, creating a variety of unique ecosystems that make this a vital refuge for species under pressure from climate change. The Peruvian government, in partnership with local communities, indigenous federations, and Amazon Conservation, has been making strides to protect this vital landscape that helps safeguard the ecological integrity of the entire region.
