548 PE - Río Abiseo National Park (1990)

Brief Description

"The park was created in 1983 to protect the fauna and flora of the rainforests that are characteristic of this region of the Andes. There is a high level of endemism among the fauna and flora found in the park. The yellow-tailed woolly monkey, previously thought extinct, is found only in this area. Research undertaken since 1985 has already uncovered 36 previously unknown archaeological sites at altitudes of between 2,500 and 4,000 m, which give a good picture of pre-Inca society."


"里奥阿比塞奥国家公园建于1983年,目的是为了保护安第斯山脉潮湿森林里特有的动物和植物。该公园里的动植物具有很强的 当地特色,这里还发现过以前被认为已经绝种的黄尾毛猴。自1985年以来进行的研究,已经发现了36个前所未知的考古地点,均位于2500米至4000米 之间的高度,这非常有利于对印加帝国以前当地社会的了解。"
