Calipuy National Sanctuary

The National Sanctuary of Calipuy was established on January 8, 1981, through Law (D.S.) N 004-81-AA. It is located next to the National Reserve of Calipuy, in the department of La Libertad, province of Santiago de Chuco, with a surface of 4500 hectares.

This sanctuary protects the puya or cahua (Puya Raimondi) which flowers only once (This a process that lasts 09 months) during this time we can see several humming birds around it.

With regard to animals living in the area, there are mammals like the andean wolf (Pseudalopex culpaeus), the white tail deer (Odocoileus virginianus) and the vizcacha (Lagidium peruanum), we con also find birds like the kiula (Tinamotis pentlandi), the halcon - falcon - perdiguero (Falco femoralis), the chinalinda or guarahuau (Phalcoboenus megalopterus) and the andean parakeet (Bolborhynchus sp.). The main purpose of this National Sanctuary is to protect the puya.
