Buildings are constructed in sustainable forest management using naturally felled trees, salvaged from the rivers, and thatched palm roofs. Animal and plant life is abundant and extremely varied in our area. There are over 132 species of mammals, 13 of which are primates.The river and lake waters are home to gray and pink dolphins, Amazonian manatees, Giant River Otters, Black Caimans and giant South American River Turtles.
