Peru officially established Yaguas National Park, a massive rainforest that stretches over two million acres. Located at the northern part of Loreto, this area controls weather patterns in the United States, hosts numerous species of fish, and is the home for over 1,000 indigenous people. It’s now being fully protected by the Peruvian government.

The Andes Amazon Fund, who aims to protect the headwater regions of the Amazon River, will donate $1 million toward new park. This will help create the new park and offers indigenous people social development resources. Ultimately, establishing this park finally ends the pressure of deforestation and mining in the area.
