Chaparri Conservation Area

This community run reserve lies around 45 miles north-east of Chiclayo. It supports 214 bird species, 21 mammals and 20 reptiles and amphibians and the excellent wildlife viewing opportunities include good chances of wild spectacled bears. In addition to spectacled bears, which can also be seen at a rehabilitation project, the list of wildlife includes the sechuran fox, pampas cat, king vultures, 50 Tumbesian endemic bird species and, though harder to see, Andean condor, guanaco and (very occasionally) a puma.
