Pelagic birding in Peru

For prices and services

White chinned petrel - Pelagic birding in Peru with Nature ExpeditionsThe richness of the Peruvian coast is the result of two water movements: The Humboldt Current, which flows northwards along the Peruvian coast, brings cool oxygen rich waters from Antarctica and the strong upwelling close to the Peruvian coast (because of the very short continental shelf) which brings up lots of nutrients. This causes a very high productivity in algae, being the primary level of the food chain, which consequently is the basis for an extraordinary rich marine life.
