The Crees Foundation for Manu is a Peruvian non-profit organization dedicated to the education, conservation, and sustainable development of the UNESCO-designated Manu Biosphere Reserve, the world’s largest and most biodiverse rainforest reserve. Over two decades, we have collaborated with both Peruvian and international organizations to achieve our mission.
As an active leader in research, education, and community projects, the Crees Foundation for Manu is deeply committed to promoting sustainable practices within the surrounding communities. Our goal is to raise awareness, inspire action, and instill environmental consciousness through science-based information. This commitment has significantly contributed to the effective management of the Reserve, ensuring its long-term health and biodiversity.
