The Amazon is the largest river in the world, cutting across much of South America going from country to country. What this means is that wherever you happen to be visiting in South America, your experience of the Amazon could be different depending upon the country. The Peruvian section of the Amazon is particularly interesting and exotic. The Amazon is considered the aorta of the earth, but unfortunately parts of the rainforest surrounding the Amazon are being cut down. This is not so in the Peruvian section of the Amazon, which is prized for be an example of how the Amazon appeared centuries ago.
The Peruvian section of the Amazon has 70% of the living species on planet earth. That’s not a typo. One of the reasons for the controversy surrounding deforestation of the Amazon is just how many species live in the Amazonian ecosystem and how important that ecosystem is for earth’s survival. Thankfully, the species are alive and thriving in the Amazonian section of Peru. Flora, fauna, insect life, mammalian, water life – this section of the Amazon has everything. Amazonian creatures have the reputation of being fierce and threatening, but much of the wildlife in the Amazon is peaceful, colorful, and needs to be seen to be believed.
By and large, when tourists take a tour through the Amazon, Peru is the main destination. This is what makes Peru so special as a destination in South America. Not only does it have some of the most interesting ruins on the entire continent, but the wilderness is also untouched. Because Peru is the top tourist destination in South America, there has been a concerted effort to preserve the country’s ecology.
