PLAN FOR THE MANAGEMENT OF A BREEDER OF SAJINOS Pecari tacaju Linnaeus 1758, IN EL FUNDO SAN JOSÉ ECO LODGE

Wildlife is the set of animal species not domesticated by humans, including animals in captivity or semi-captivity and involving all animals that do not depend on humans for their survival. Wildlife has been used since ancient times as a natural resource, which has proven to be exhaustible and in some cases difficult to recover. Currently its non-consumptive use is linked to medicine, scientific research and ecotourism, the latter activity defined as the act of traveling to natural areas with the specific purpose of studying, admiring and enjoying the landscape, its plants and animals. Tourism is the largest industry in the world and its fastest growing segment is ecotourism. About 32% of the tourists who visited developing countries said that the most satisfactory in their trips was nature, around 30%, tourists are interested in wildlife and a significant proportion travels to photograph it. To undertake ecotourism activities, it is It is essential to have sites that present characteristics such as the presence of native fauna, landscapes of high aesthetic value, the existence of poorly altered ecosystems, basic infrastructure, etc., in a way that satisfies the requirements of the visitor. Of the ecosystems attractive to ecotourism, the forests stand out for their biodiversity. In Peru, the fauna has an important potential in the socio-economic and cultural development. One species that lives in the forests of the Peruvian jungle is the peccary Pecari tacaju, which is used by the local populations as "bush meat" to your protein supply. Pecari tajacu is not a species protected by Peruvian legislation, however it is considered in Appendix II of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora - CITES. Your hunting is allowed under the denomination
of subsistence hunting, destined to the self-sufficiency of food of the local populations. There are no complete studies of the population dynamics and possibly very few in other areas that allow us to know the species in natural environments.
