PROMPERÚ’s stand will provide visitors with information on Peru’s rich variety of birds and wildlife, and how travellers can maximise their birdwatching opportunities on a Peru visit. The tourism board will be joined by Peruvian birding and wildlife experts to talk to UK travellers about the country’s most exciting birding routes and locations from Mirador del Colca in the south to the Alto Mayo valley in northern Peru, giving their own personal recommendations along the way.

Learn about Peru’s birdwatching opportunities
Holding about eighteen percent of the world’s 10,000 species of birds, Peru is a superlative Neotropical birding destination in South America. With its Amazonian jungles, cloud forests and Andes mountain ranges, Peru provides an extensive and diverse habitat for more than 1,800 bird species, and 109 endemic bird species, making it one of the world’s best birdwatching locations. Almost every eco-lodge in the Amazon basin lists over 600 bird species for their property alone. In the last three decades, on average two new bird species have been discovered in Peru each year, including the Andean Condor, the world’s largest flying bird. PROMPERÚ invites all visitors to come to their stand and to discover what Peru has to offer.
