Spectacled Bear

Spectacled Bear

The Inkaterra Association (ITA) and the Protected Natural Areas National Service (SERNANP) manage the Inkaterra Machu Picchu Spectacled Bear Project, an effort designed to recover bears that have been negatively affected by human impact, and reintroduce them into their natural habitat.

Once common throughout the Andes, the spectacled bear is now critically endangered. Visits to the project are organized with advanced coordination to gain insight into the world of these large mammals (the only bear species in South America), and learn about the challenges they face to survive in today’s world. Donations to the project are welcome and will be duly acknowledged and certified.
