Tropical rainforests in the Amazon are home to most of the planet’s biodiversity. Special design and implementation is required in diverse tropical forests. The increasing energy demand worldwide, specifically in Peru, is boosting hydrocarbon exploration and production within Block 57, a section of the Amazon rain forest in Peru because of significant numbers of natural gas reserves on the eastern Andean slope. Despite future projections in the region and the current development of exploratory drilling techniques, little is understood about the impacts exploration activities could have on ecosystems with high biodiversity and how wildlife will respond to those impacts.Double-click to edit the value.
