A natural museum and a panoramic viewpoint will be built at Villa Swamps, a protected natural area within the city of Lima, to enable students and public in general to learn about its biological diversity, the municipal authority Prohvilla reported.
Prohvilla's technical director, Daniel Valle, noted that the museum or interpretation center will showcase several species from the swamps, with complete information about them.
He went on to say that the construction of this center is part of a project which includes the installation of a perimeter fence in the southern and northern areas of natural reserve, with a budget of four million soles.
“Only 40 percent of perimeter of the swamp is protected by metallic fences. We will build a triple fence using mesh, vegetation and irrigation ditches to reduce the possibility to enter without authorization,” he told Andina news agency.
Regarding the panoramic viewpoint, Valle said that it will be between four and six meters tall so that the visitors can enjoy most of swamps located in the Lima district of Chorrillos.
