Yakumamay is an innovative Amazonian conservation project based near the city of Iquitos in the Loreto region of Peru. Founded in 1996 Yakumamay has pioneered community led conservation of forest resources and the development of Live Pharmacies. Since its foundation the project has grown to include nearly 12,000 hectares of primary rainforest and a comprehensive medicinal plant garden. The project is managed by the residents of two communities in collaboration with anthropologists from the University of Cambridge, England. In addition to managing the reserve the communities now welcome visitors in small numbers.
