“AQUARIUM OF ARAPAIMA, ETHNO-BOTANICAL GARDEN, THE FOREST OF HUAYO, WHITE-SAND FOREST, RAFTING IN THE AGUAJAL OR WETLAND”
This area is home of the most representatives species of Amazonian flora that have been used for our ancestors. The aim is to revalue our traditional knowledge and promote, in children, the sense of belonging to the Amazonian forest.
Walking through different paths in the forest, you discover one of the most rare, fragile and important ecosystems of the Amazon, the White-Sand Forests, natural areas that cover only 0.05% of the Amazon.
Currently, these forests are disappearing at an alarming rate, due to the fact that white sand is one of the only construction materials available in the area for urban building. It is therefore imperative to get local people involved in its conservation.
