Near Villa Buen Pastor, located 21 km along the major (unfinished) road that leads from Iquitos to Nauta, substantial secondary growth of forest is evident after removal of primary forest for human agricultural and living activities. One must walk approximately 1–2 km from the road to get to the village and a further 1–2 km from Villa Buen Pastor to Moralillo, another village studied in this report.
