The Sierra del Divisor region in the Peruvian Amazon was identified as a biodiversity conservation priority back in the early 1990s. More than 20 years later and Peruvians are still waiting. If established, the Sierra del Divisor National Park would stretch across two of Peru’s biggest regions, Loreto and Ucayali, and run adjacent to the international border where, right the other side, Brazil created its own Sierra do Divisor National Park years ago. Will Peru follow suit?
