This conservation area will include five hills of Lima: those of Ancón, Carabayllo 1 and 2, Lomas de Amancaes and Lomas de Villa María. All are located precisely on the periphery of Lima, which is usually a fragile point to attacks by invaders and traffickers.
“The hills of Lima not only provide ecosystem services to all citizens, but they are unique ecosystems that during the dry season are characterized by waiting for the seeds to find moisture and flourish; while in the wet season they green and reveal a great variety of vegetation, ”said the Lomas del Perú Network.
