Main
achievements

Training was provided to park rangers at the Hipona surveillance and control points (PVC for its acronym in Spanish) facilities. Also, 01 special patrol was conducted in the Mutum sector of the NPA. And since the declaration of the state of emergency, the PVC, the Remanzo sub-site and the NPAs administrative headquarters have been provided with medicines, medical equipment and oxygen to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. As part of the communal surveillance activities, communal first aid kits were implemented in the 12 native communities of the lower Putumayo river basin. The native community of Pesquería now has only 1 inhabitant and receives support from the Remanzo native community.

Conservation agreements were signed in eight (08) native communities at the Ampiyacu basin.

The Sustainable Economic Activities Program (PAES for its acronym in Spanish) was followed up in nine (09) native communities with which agreements have been established with PROFONANPE and SERNANP in the Putumayo basin.
