In October 2010, a team of experts from Peru, Colombia, and the United States conducted a rapid social and biological inventory of the Yaguas, Cotuhé, and the lower Putumayo watersheds of northeastern Peru. The social team assessed the strengths and aspirations of local communities while the biological team studied geology, vegetation, fishes, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals at four wilderness sites. Based on these studies the inventory team drew up a detailed series of recommendation for sustaining healthy towns and forests in the areas. The full report and results are provided in Spanish and English.
