Depending on the conditions, the plants and animals of the jungle also vary, all in all an unimaginably diverse flora and fauna, e.g. more than 600 different bird species in a relatively small area.

Large areas of the jungle have been declared protected areas in order to preserve them in their original form. At various points in the peruvian jungle there are jungle hostels (lodges) for a wide variety of requirements and corresponding tourist services to enable tourists to experience the magic of the jungle, its plants, animals and indigenous inhabitants.
