Dry Forest Research (Calipuy)
A Rocha Peru collaborated with SERNANP Calipuy National Reserve in May 2021 to contribute to the conservation and protection of the biodiversity in this area.
Currently A Rocha Peru is conducting research between 479 and 811 meters above sea level in the dry forest. The team found a variety of flora including Algarrobo (Prosopis pallida), Huarango (Acacia huarango), and Palo Negro (Lycium boerhaviifolium ). In addition, at the highest gradient of the buffer zone, the team identified the vulnerable Peruvian Plantcutter (Phytotoma raimondii), amongst other fauna like the Coastal miner (Geositta peruviana) and southern viscacha (Lagidium viscacia).
