Keywords: migration, stressors, invasion, wetland, monitoring, analysis


In the Pantanos de Villa we find “Marvilla”, an outstanding tourist circuit whose route runs along part of the Peruvian coast. On the tour of the circuit you can see a great variety of bird species, both resident and seasonal, that take advantage of this area to feed, rest, and even as a nesting place. Given its characteristics, it is important to propose adequate measures that simultaneously allow the protection of birds and guided visits. After analyzing the records of the birds in the Pantanos de Villa during 2020, visits during the months of December-March are proposed as ideal for tourist activities, it is recommended to reduce the capacity of people during the reproductive season, it is requested to take into account the anthropogenic stressors that can lead to changes in the structure and abundance of the bird fauna, and the work for systematic registries that allowed the analysis of the information to take precautions and propose adequate measures is highlighted.
