Bolivia | Municipal government creates new 860,000-hectare PA

A new protected area in northwest Bolivia will promote wildlife conservation and sustainable development in local communities, its creators say.


The municipal government of Reyes, in northwest Bolivia, approved the Municipal Park and Natural Area of Integral Management Rhukanrhuka on June 25. The protected area encompasses some 859,451 hectares or more than 2.1 million acres, making it nearly as large as Yellowstone National Park in the United States, widely regarded to be the first national park ever created.
