Our team

We founded CIMA in 2002 with the intention to make a difference in the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity. With more than 50 employees in 5 offices throughout Peru, CIMA manages Cordillera Azul National Park, a protected area the size of Northern-Ireland.
A multi-disciplinary group of social and environmental experts, we are dedicated to conserving, researching and managing biodiversity.
