Background

The Marvelous Spatuletail hummingbird (Loddigesia mirabilis) is considered the most beautiful hummingbird in the world. It is an endemic bird of the Utcubamba valley and its habitat is only about 8700 km2 (3 times the size of metropolitan Lima). It is one of the iconic species for birdwatching in Peru.

Current situation

Despite its importance for Peru, there is no agenda focused on its conservation, and its habitat is threatened by deforestation. It is estimated that its current population is less than 1000 individuals, that in the coming years its habitat could be reduced by 60%, reducing its population by half. For these reasons, it is in danger of extinction.

Alliance for Conservation

We have been forging a regional alliance that brings together civil society organizations committed to conservation. This is a long-term initiative that needs different actors involved. If you want to join, you can see more information here.

Ecological Restoration Pilot Project

Working with the Palmira nursery, we have been producing 15 of the 50 native plants that make up the hummingbirds habitat and

we have implemented the first ecological sanctuary focused on its survival, with more than 200 hectares of private management in which we have been restoring degraded habitats.
