'Biodiversity' is the degree of variation of life forms within a given species, ecosystem, biome, or planet. Incredibly Manu National Park, site of the Amazon Conservation Project, has recently been established to have one of the highest biodiversity levels on earth, breaking records for the numbers of amphibians and reptiles. Why not read more about this in this National Geographic article to find out more about this incredible biodiversity record.

Manu is also famous as being one of the most reliable destinations to see Jaguars. Nearly 70% of visitors have seen these magnificent cats during the dry season in recent years according to recent figures from the National Park Authorities. Of course, if you're not lucky enough to spot these magnificent cats on a visit to Manu, there is another way in which to spot them. Jaguars and other mammals, like ocelots, giant anteaters and pumas, are often spotted via camera traps set up around the park. This is a method used by many wildlife researchers – particularly on the Amazon Conservation Project.

Below are some of the best shots from camera traps set up in and around the Manu Biosphere Reserve. Pretty spectacular and one of a kind if you ask us!
