An excerpt from the article 43 facts about Peru

It is located in Peru, in the Eastern Cordillera, on the border of the Northern Andes and the Amazon. It protects the landscape of the mountain cloud forest and equatorial forest. Its area is 17.162.95 square kilometers. There are over 20.000 species of flora - about 200 different species of trees per 1 ha. There are 159 species of mammals, 100 species of bats, 99 species of reptiles, 140 species of amphibians, and 1000 species of birds, which constitute about 1/10 of the world's avifauna. Since 2008, the national park has been completely incorporated into the Important Bird Area called Manu. The status was granted due to the presence of species such as the hooded tinamou, black tinamou, Taczanowski's tinamou, Orinoco goose, blue-headed macaw, crested eagle, black-necked stilt, Selva cacique, and others.
