SERNANP PERU logo

We ensure the conservation of Protected Natural Areas, their biological diversity and the maintenance of their environmental services, within the framework of their participatory management and articulated to a comprehensive policy of sustainable development of the country.

Sernanp is the governing body of the National System of Natural Protected Areas by the State – SINANPE, and in its capacity as technical-normative authority, it carries out its work in coordination with regional and local governments and owners of properties recognized as private conservation areas.

Our goal is to conserve the vast biodiversity of Peru, as well as to bring protected natural areas closer to the population, to make it possible for all Peruvians to take advantage of the resources that they provide us in a sustainable way. In this way, we contribute to the conservation of our natural heritage and the sustainable development of the national economy.

MISSION

Conduct the National System of Protected Natural Areas of Peru with an ecosystem perspective, comprehensive and participatory, in order to sustainably manage its biological diversity and maintain ecosystem services that provide benefits to society.
