Exploring the Amazon rain forest is a bucket list adventure for any  nature lover. Peru’s vibrant environment, teeming with wildlife, is also one of the most threatened wild places on Earth. Some of World Wildlife Fund’s most important conservation work is focused on protecting the Amazon as a globally important ecosystem.

Traveler James Schwanke captured these Peruvian nature images during his Great Amazon River Cruise with Natural Habitat Adventures.
