In 2010, a team of experts conducted a rapid social and biological inventory of the Yaguas, Cotuhe, and lower Putumayo watersheds of northeastern Peru. They assessed the geology, vegetation, fishes, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals at four wilderness sites. This report offers recommendations for sustaining healthy towns and forests in the areas, and it is provided here in Spanish and English.
