Conservation in the Central Huallagal PDF Print E-mail

In the Central Huallaga region we find the southern limit of the distribution range of the San Martin titi monkey. The eastern border is formed by the Huallaga river, while the Huayabamba river serves as the southern border (with small populations on the other sides of both rivers, limited by ecological or geographical factors). The population of C. oenanthe in the Central Huallaga region differs somewhat from the northern population. Animals with a darker colouration and absence of the white mask, that characterize the titi monkeys from the Alto Mayo, are here more common.

The NGO NPC (Neotropical Primate Conservation) has determined, with data collected by Proyecto Mono Tocón, the principal zones where conservation areas for the San Martin titi monkey could be created. Most of these zones are in the Central Huallaga region.

In 2011 Proyecto Mono Tocón started, together with NPC, the Shitariyacu and Tres Quebradas Projects, two examples of community conservation projects, that conserve almost 6.000 hectares of humid tropical forest. Just like for the other conservation programs of Proyecto Mono Tocón, the Central Huallaga project supports parallel projects initiated by other entities. This is the case with the Pucunucho Project , an environmental education project for the San Martin titi monkey, requested by the NGO AMPA (Amazónicos por la Amazonia).
