The Anamey Biodiversity Reserve protects and conserves 15,447.54 hectares of montane tropical forest located in the district of Camanti, province of Quispicanchi, department of Cusco, through the initiative of the Sustainable Camanti Association.

In 2022, the Peruvian government granted to Camanti Sostenible Association the conservation area to protect it for 40 years through the following resolution: Resolución Administrativa N° D000059-2022-MIDAGRI-SERFOR-ATFFS-CUSCO.

The conservation area is named the “Anamey Biodiversity Reserve,” which in the native Harakmbut language means “The Tree of Life.” This reserve features a distinctive landscape, ranging from 2,400 to 500 meters above sea level, spanning Amazonian rainforest and untouched primary forests. It serves as a habitat for various endemic and endangered species of flora and fauna, including the spectacled bear (Tremarctos ornatus) and the Tegu lizard (Tupinambis cuzcoensis), among others. Additionally, due to its geographical location, the area serves as a crucial water source, being a strategic point of watershed. Therefore, we are committed to preserving these headwaters, which are of paramount importance.
