The border lines between the countries that share limits in the Amazon and, particularly, those of the triple border between Brazil, Colombia and Peru, located in a region called Amazonian Trapezoid, were historically characterized by disputes over territory at the time. of the Portuguese conquest, on the Brazilian side, and Spanish, on the Andean side (Colombia and Peru). These limits also stem from later conflicts, during the nineteenth century, over the exploitation of various forest products, mainly rubber, cinchona and wood.
The interest of the countries to exercise their own control over the area, based on the exploitation of forest resources, generated processes of occupation and meeting of the governments to define the respective limits. So in 1930, with the signing of the Lozano-Salomón treaty, these were defined, forming the current area of the triple border.
On the Colombian side, the Amazon Trapezoid is made up of the municipalities of Leticia, capital of the department of Amazonas, and Puerto Nariño. The Brazilian part is made up of Tabatinga, Benjamin Constant and Atalaia do Norte, belonging to the state of Amazonas. And the Peruvian side includes the districts of Yavarí and Ramón Castilla, in the province of Loreto.
The Ampiyacu Apayacu Regional Conservation Area is a protected area in Peru. It was created on December 23, 2010, through D.S. No. 024-2010-MINAM and covers an area of 434 129.54 hectares in the provinces of Maynas and Ramón Castilla, in the Loreto region.1
The area protects the Amazon rainforest north of the Amazon River, which guarantees sustainable access and the upper parts of the Ampiyacu and Apayacu basins are sources of water that maintain the aquatic fauna, the main source of food for 16 native communities that inhabit in these basins.
It has 1,500 species of plants that make it the most biodiverse. The area is home to 207 species of fish, 64 of amphibians, 40 of reptiles, 362 of birds and 60 of mammals.
The Yaguas National Park was created on January 11, 2018 and is located in the Loreto Region of Peru near the border with Colombia. It covers an area of 8,689 km² (2,147,100 acres) of tropical forest. Along with Río Puré, Cahuinarí and Amacayacu National Park in Colombia, as well as the Regional Conservation Areas Maijuna Kichwa and Ampiyacu Apayacu in Peru, it is part of a huge biological corridor.
There are approximately 600 species of birds, 150 species of mammals, 110 species of amphibians, and 100 species of reptiles in the national park, such as brown woolly monkey, anteater, South American tapir, giant otter, Amazonian manatee, Amazon river dolphin, caiman, and yellow-footed tortoise. More than 300 species of fish are also found in the park, among them fish that cross the forest not swimming nor floating down a river, feeding on fruits and living in branches and Arapaima gigas, the largest freshwater fish in the world.
