Worlds largest rain forest national park created in Northern Amazon

r its long-term vision, dedication and leadership on conserving its precious biodiversity," said Russell Mittermeier, President of Conservation International. "Since Tumucumaque is one of the greatest unexplored places on Earth, we can only imagine what undiscovered mysteries will one day be found in the park."

The new park will be administered in collaboration with the Amap State, which has maintained remarkably intact forests, and has implemented an ambitious sustainable development program that satisfies both environmental and human needs. The program includes plans for income generation for local communities, emphasizes the preservation of natural resources, and combines advanced modern technologies with traditions of the region, such as respect for local cultures.

CIBrazil has worked closely with Brazil's federal and state officials toward creation of the park, by providing technical assistance during the planning phase as well as by collecting information about the region's biological importance.

CI-Brazil will continue working with Amap State to support the new park by assisting with mapping, enforcement activities, developing basic infrastructure, inventory of the region's biodiversity and environmental education for communities living in areas adjacent to the park.

"Walking through this park today looks much like it would have hundreds of years ago, since Tumucumaque has not been deforested," said Jos Maria Cardoso da Silva, Director for Amazonia, CI-Brazil. "By creating the largest tropical forest national park in the world, Brazil has once again demonstrated its commitment to protecting some of the most precious biodiversity on Earth."

The Global Conservation Fund (GCF) at Conservation International is supporting critical activities that contributed to the declaration and implementation of the new park. The GCF is the global leader in rapidly and sustainably protecting the world's most biologically significant r
