Adventure Life travelers, Greg and Bridget Litten, share with us a bit of their Amazon adventures in Peru's Tambopata National Reserve.

The Tambopata National Reserve (TNR) is part of a 3.7 million acre reserve in southeastern Amazonian Peru. It protects the biological diversity of the entire watersheds of the Tavara and the Candamo Rivers and most of the watershed of the Tambopata River. The motivations and the design of the TNR includes a philosophy of sustainable development and conservation of forest resources. And as such, TNR supports environmentally friendly Amazon tours to help generate valuable profits for the reserve. It gives visitors the chance to become life-long advocates for Amazon conservation, by seeing, touching, smelling, tasting and learning for themselves why this delicate environment is so important to protect. A philosophy certainly after my own heart...

Over 1,300 bird species (including 32 parrot species - 10% of the world's total), 200 mammal species, 90 frog species, 1,200 butterfly species and 10,000 species of higher plants are protected within this reserve.The TNR protects habitats from the Andean highlands around the rivers' headwaters through some of the last remaining intact cloud forests to the lowland rainforests of the Amazon basin.

To put it simply, an incredible place.
