Asociacion Peruana para la Conservacion de la Naturaleza
A Peruvian non-profit organisation committed to the conservation and management of biological diversity. Since its inception in 1982, APECO has conducted research projects such as conservation status for yellow-tailed monkey, penguins, shore birds, the faunal inventory of Rio Abiseo National Park, conservation and development in Lake Titicaca National Reserve.
Since 1990, a new strategy has been developed based on the concept of integrated conservation program. The first integrated conservation program that APECO has launched seeks to control the rate of deforestation and to conserve biological diversity of the mountain forest Northeast of Peru.
