As part of initiatives to raise awareness about the environment and promote the importance of natural values and environmental services provided by protected natural areas in Peru, the National Service of Natural Protected Areas by the State (Sernanp), in collaboration with the Tambopata National Reserve, has initiated the Vacation Enrichment activities aimed at school-age children and adolescents in Puerto Maldonado.

Youth’s reception

Over 50 students joined an engaging environmental workshop, kicking off the activities with enthusiasm in Puerto Maldonado educational institutions.

This event provided valuable insights into the significance of protected areas but also emphasized their crucial role in biodiversity.

Also conservation and the sustainable progress of the region is a main theme.

These revelations were conveyed to the INFOREGIÓN team by the Ministry of the Environment (Minam), underscoring the ongoing commitment of the National Service of Natural Protected Areas by the State (Sernanp) and the Tambopata National Reserve to environmental awareness and the promotion of natural values among young students during the Vacation Enrichment program.

During the seven scheduled modules, which will take place until February, the students will participate in practical workshops covering various topics such as: understanding the Natural Protected Areas (ANP) of Peru and Madre de Dios, art with recycling, flora and fauna of the Amazon, climate change, taking care of my planet, environmental interpretation, and guided visits to the Tambopata National Reserve.

The workshops are led by specialists, park rangers, and volunteers from the protected natural area dynamically engaging with children and teenagers. After the break, attendees join the “Miniguides Club in PAs” to transform into environmental leaders.
