With support from ACT, members of the Curare – Los Ingleses indigenous reserve participated in their second mapping/GPS training workshop, in order to strengthen the community’s conservation monitoring program that seeks to protect their territory and that of indigenous isolated peoples.

In the area, ACT has been working in close partnership with the community of Curare – Los Ingleses indigenous reserve, financing the construction of several guard posts to monitor and protect strategic entry points into the vulnerable ecosystem, facilitating land management agreements between indigenous associations, and educating local indigenous communities on the environment and human rights.

The community participated in an environmental and cultural education workshop as part of the overall training.
