Cusco – Ninamarka /Manu Nature Lodge .

We leave Cusco early in the morning to start our adventure! First, we are taken by private transport to a place called Ninamarca to observe pre-Incan “chullpas” (tombs) of the Lupaca culture. Then, we continue to Paucartambo, a colonial town with narrow streets and a beautiful church, where people still keep their old customs. Then, we ascend to the viewpoint Tres Cruces (3,900 masl) to beautiful view of the amazon basin if the weather permits. From there, we start descending to Manu National Park, home of species such as the cock of the rock (the Peruvian national bird), hummingbirds, strikingly-coloured quetzals, trogons, spotted flycatchers, and woolly monkies. In terms of flora, we can view a variety of orchids, mosses, ferns, etc. Finally, We reach our Manu Cloud Forest Lodge to have a relaxing evening by the lodge’s veranda. The sound of the Union Creek will put us into a pleasant sleep.

Manu Nature Day 2:

Manu Nature Lodge / Port Atalaya / Dorado Lodge ( optional Patiacolla Lodge ) Manu National Park

The lush and misty cloud forest is perhaps the most fragile and threatened type of rainforest. This forest which starts from 11,000 feet, and continue down to about 5,000 feet of elevation, cover the eastern slopes of the Andes, before yielding to the vast lowland forest of the Amazon. This is a kingdom of moss, lichens, ferns, and orchids.
Early excursion to a nearby platform and blind strategically located to see a “lek” where the brightly red-colored Cocks-of-the Rock perform a daily display for the females. Afterwards we return to our lodge for a hearty breakfast.
After breakfast, we will board our private vehicle for an3 hour to the main port of the Manu – Atalaya National Park (500 masl). There, we will board a motorized boat to continue for about 4 hours navigating the Madre de Dios River. Along the river, we have a great opportunity to observe several species such as herons, vultures, kingfishers, turtles, egrets and some of the 13 species of monkeys that live in Manu! We will have lunch in Hot Spring Manu Park where you will have the opportunity to take a refreshing bath Afterwards we will take our boat outboard later We reach our next Lodge Pantiacolla or Dorado Lodge Pantiacolla lodge accommodation in our private room in the afternoon we will have the

Circle the Problem: A Case Study of the Manu Biosphere Reserve .
I. Introduction .
In a nondescript oxbow lake formed by a meander of the Tambopata River lives a family of giant river otters. According to restrictions placed by a local ecotourism lodge visitors can only explore a small portion of the lake. The restrictions form a one-way glass wall preventing humans from intruding. To some extent it allows otters, and other fauna of the area, Manu Nature to determine the degree of human intrusion in the lake Manu nature. The idea of one-way walls – or fishbowls – has caught the attention of policymakers, researchers or conservationists who wish to preserve some of the world’s jeopardized ecosystems Manu Nature. One particular “fishbowl” initiative – biosphere reserves – has been created, packaged and advertised by the United Nation’s Man and the Biosphere Program (MAB) as an innovative laboratory for conservation and development. Instances of and support for biosphere reserves Manu Nature grew over the latter half of the 20th century. This paper examines the structure of the reserves and their importance today Manu Nature . It will analyze the merits of a biosphere reserve’s security system and provide recommendations for improving the initiative based off of a case study of the Manu Biosphere Reserve located in Peru Manu Nature. It will argue that the current security system provides inadequate protection to the core area of a biosphere reserve. The best means of creating an adequate defense system will require creating an independent funding source to finance paid security guards that protect the core area of a biosphere reserve ( Manu Nature ).

II. Biosphere Reserves 101 : Manu Nature Biosphere reserves came from discussions during the United Nation’s Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization’s (UNESCO) “ Manu nature Biosphere Conference” in 1968. It strives to combine three functions Manu Nature:

(1) Manu Nature conservation of landscapes, ecosystems, species and genetic variation; (2) Manu Nature foster ecologically friendly human and economic development; and (3) Manu Nature  international logistical support for conservation and sustainable development (The Seville Strategy, 1).Manu Nature  The biosphere concept adopts a unique zoning system to accomplish its threefold purpose. According to MAB’s Statutory Framework of the World Network of Biosphere Reserves Manu Nature , a leading document that outlines the concept of biosphere reserves, land allocation to a “core area” serves the first function of biospheres. The act of devoting land of “sufficient size…to long-term protection according to the conservation objectives” attempts to accomplish this first goal (Statutory Framework, 17). A “buffer zone” and “transition area” serve the second function through promoting economic stimulators that also help the environment. An international network of information exchange among biosphere reserves, facilitated by MAB, accomplishes the third function Manu Nature.

II. Rise of the Biosphere Manu Nature .
Before proceeding to examine the particular workings of security systems within biosphere reserves,Manu Nature  their importance in the larger scheme of environmental conservation must be noted. The concept of “protected areas”, or setting aside areas of land in order that it preserves its intrinsic properties, is not a novel or inconsequential concept. Since the establishment of Yellowstone National Park in 1872, protected areas have grown to cover 12% of the Earth’s Transition Area Buffer Zone Manu Nature Core Area 3 landmass (Chape, Harrison, Spalding, and Lysenko, 2). Biosphere reserves are classified as protected areas and certainly factor into recent growth trends in the area of protected areas. Since 1975, when MAB first conceived the idea of a biosphere reserve, trends indicate that both instances of protected areas and the size of those protected areas have increased.  Biosphere reserves Manu Nature  are often created as an afterthought to a national park. As a result, “a number of biosphere reserves encompass areas protected by other systems” (Seville Strategy 2). The original national park assumes the role of the core area while buffer zones and transition zones organically grow around the core as land ownership constraints permit. Therefore, as displayed in the graph above, the fact that the cumulative area sites has increased at a greater rate than the cumulative number of sites since 1975 shows that biosphere reserves are weighting heavily into recently established protected areas. The creation of a biosphere reserve Manu Nature  typically involves increasing the land area of an already protected area and not necessarily creating a new park. The graph and these trends display two significant trends: (1) biosphere reserves are gaining popularity; and (2) biosphere reserves require landmasses larger than conventional national parks Manu Nature.

III. Security and Biospheres C hape, Harrison, Spalding, Lysen k 4 The second of the two trends presented by the graph in particular concerns this paper. Biosphere reserves Manu Nature are often large, sprawling areas of land. In fact, conceived biospheres to be just that. The program specifies that core areas “should embrace large areas” in order that they preserve ecosystems fully. Species of an ecosystem exhibit an incredible dependency on one another. Therefore “any strategy to conserve biodiversity must maintain the web of interactions that regulates and perpetuates the ecological system” (amazon wild ). Even the preservation of solely single species creates an argument for large reserves amazon wild . The populations of top predators frequently collapse in areas that are too small” and therefore their preservation make the case for “mega-reserves” (Laurance 646). The emphasis on allocating a large landmass provides for the conservation of whole ecosystems rather than particular species  peru  wild . It allows nature to maintain its own balances amazon  peru . The vast size of biosphere reserves brings an administrative and security nightmare Manu Nature. The picture on the right depicts a broken gate in the Tambopata region of Peru. A termite nest, circled in red, has weakened the left edge of the gate. It provides no functional value. The picture depicts the difficulty of building a physical security system to protect areas devoted to conservation  Manu Nature. The area must be large enough to maintain the web of interactions. However, building and maintaining physical boundaries that will not significantly damag 5 nested buffer zones that allow increased human interference with increased distance from the core area formally comes from discussions Manu Nature. The intent being that the zones Manu Nature“should ideally protect resources while being culturally acceptable and economically viable” (Heinin, Mehta, 47). While biosphere reserves fully advocate the idea of buffer zones, there are few studies that really test the effectiveness of buffer zones Manu Nature. Most studies that have been conducted focus on the socioeconomic effects rather than the implicit security functions that buffer zones provide (Heinin, Mehta, 48). The situation in the Manu Nature Biosphere Reserve in Peru provides and excellent framework for understanding if biosphere reserves are truly realizing the protection proclaimed by their advocates Manu Nature .

IV. Ecosystems of Manu Biosphere Reserve Scientists rate Manu Nature National Park, the land that accounts for the core area of the Manu Biosphere Reserve, as one of the few remaining gems in the rapidly deforesting Amazon. Its remote location makes it difficult for even poachers and loggers to penetrate. The area supports a diverse array of fauna, flora and in particular rare top predators such as the harpy eagle and jaguar ( amazon wild ). The varied altitudes of the park allow for a number of ecosystems and thus the astounding diversity of the park. The buffer zone currently only protects the eastern edges of the park amazon wild . However, plans are in place to gradually increase the area ( amazon wild ). When Manu Nature National Park was first established the Peruvian Manu Nature government hired army corps, bought boats and vehicles, and trained a staff in the protection of the core area of the biosphere reserve amazon wild . In the early days of the park the guards effectively shielded the park against poachers, gold miners, loggers and other people who contributed to the degradation of the area amazon peru . As political priorities, and subsequently funding for the park, changed the situation of the core area significantly degraded. Only recently, when the government has provided the park with 6 financial assistance is it doing better (amazon peru ). Physical and active security systems provided a strong support system for protecting the core area of the park amazon wild . The buffer zones, which provided natural land barriers to protect the core area, did not provide as much or effective protection and physical, man-powered security systems did. While this paper still advocates the use of a human force as a security system a disadvantage must be noted. One of the dominant ecosystems of Manu National Park, Manu Nature  the tropical montane forests, is particularly vulnerable to climate change. Global temperature increases significantly affect cloud forest due to a dramatic decrease in clouds at lower altitudes and cloud forest epiphytes are particularly sensitive to such changes in humidity (peru wild ). Therefore, no matter how much money, energy and time Manu devotes to physically protecting its core area, the effects of global climate change will inevitably adversely affect the ecosystems of the park Manu nature peru wild  .

V. People of Manu Biosphere Reserve Manu Nature : While the activities of the core and buffer zones are required to be non-extractive, the transition zones of biosphere reserves allow native populations to live and utilize the resources  amazon wild .
The allowance implicitly argues that those native populations will not conduct activities significantly destructive to the reserve. It also places the faith in these people to remain outside of the core area – which is meant to exist only as a laboratory for low impact observation and research. In the absence of security guards there is no way to monitor the activities of these native tribes. Four ethno-groups live in the biosphere, of which one is uncontacted. All of the contacted groups have gradually shifted from more nomadic to sedentary lifestyles peru wild . Research by Joesph Henrich indicates that “traditional patters of subsistence and resource use are evolving into a highly unsustainable mixture of commodity production” for the Machigunga, a group living in the biosphere reserve (Henrich 322). In the face of increasing availability to western commodity markets in the past two decades the group has lost many of its nomadic resource management practices and instead intensively farm the land. Henrich’s conclusion comes from observing their primary money making practices. He found an almost linear association between the number of cows owned by a community and the number of hectares that community cleared for their grazing. The maximum, owned by the Nuevo Mundo Machiguenga community, totaled to 40 cows and 30 hectares of cleared land ( amazon peru ). Only personnel on guard can monitor the resource use of such ethno groups to ensure the core area is not disturbed Manu Nature.

VI. Recommendations Amazon Peru . Before making any final recommendations one additional issue must be discussed. The intent of this paper is not to open a discourse regarding the ethical soundness of restraining the resource use of ethno-groups peru wild . It is not even to engage in a discussion regarding the effectiveness of national parks or non-extractive protected areas Manu Nature . Rather it is to examine, based on the case of the Manu Nature Biosphere Reserve, if the reserve is truly realizing the claims of security to the core zone provided by the buffer zone. Clearly, based on ability of both internal and external human groups to extract resources, the buffer zone simply does not provide adequate protection to the core area amazon peru . Certainly in the case of the Manu Biosphere Reserve, the well-being of the park stood at the whim of political powers miles away in Peru’s capitol wild nature . Therefore, the park must establish financial independence and use the money to support the upkeep of the park – in particular to fund a guard force Manu Nature . Legally land rights of a biosphere reserve reside in the hands of the local or regional government. However, to prevent the park from feeling the effect of a budget squeeze financial independence is crucial. The logistical support aspect of biosphere reserves provides an incredible resource to leverage. Biosphere reserves can use the network of resources to learn about, discuss, and improve their financial management skills Manu Nature.

This is an impressive sanctuary within the Manu National Park. The Lodge is one of the principles of Manu and is therefore well established and comfortable in the long term. The dining room and the leisure area is excellent. The rooms are comfortable and create a connection with the natural environment. To be able to hear, see and experience the surrounding jungle is the reason why we chose to enter Manu National Park, to be part of nature for a while. We appreciate the staff render a friendly and positive attitude, always ready to help and inform. The food was excellent, with fresh produce and local specialties cafes. When visiting Manu ask to feel as if you want a 5 star accommodation experience or to connect with nature in a sustainable way, if the latter is an answer then choose Manu Park Lodge as the best option.
