There are also diverse endangered species such as the giant otter (Pteronura brasiliensis), the bush dog (Speothos venaticus), the black caiman (Melanosuchus niger), and the harpy eagle (Harpia Harpyja).The area has different types of vegetations that can be found in flood plains and sedimentary plains (aguajales, terrace forests, gallery forests, among others); on hills (foothill forests, hill forests, among others); and on mountains (high and low mountain forests). Some of the main objectives of the Tambopata-Candamo Reserved Area are the conservation of the wild flora and fauna, and its beautiful sceneries; as well as the protection, conservation, and assessment of the cultural, natural, and landscape resources of the area. Moreover, it is necessary to do research on the potential management of natural resources, and to count on the participation of the surrounding populations for the management of these resources as an alternative for a sustainable development in the southeast area.

Another objective is to protect areas at high risk of soil erosion so as to guarantee continuing agricultural and forest activities, and to promote the conservation of the existing natural resources. In this regard, it is necessary to integrate the three fundamental bases that support conservation: 1) to maintain the existing ecological processes; 2) to conserve diversity; and 3) to manage resources in a sustainable way.
