Ac­cess PanAm

The Huaruz chap­ter of Ac­cess PanAm, led by Ser­gio Car­ras­cal, fo­cuses on ac­cess is­sues through­out Huas­carán Na­tional Park. One goal, Car­ras­cal says, “is to al­low ac­cess to Huas­carán Na­tional Park, bear­ing in mind the re­spon­si­bil­ity that comes with this ac­cess.” Another pri­or­ity is to fos­ter en­vi­ron­men­tal stew­ard­ship in the lo­cal pop­u­la­tion and ed­u­cate and hire lo­cal guides. ac­ce­sopanam.com/en/

Amer­i­can Climber Science Pro­gram

The ACSP fo­cuses on re­search-ori­ented trips into the Cordillera, ex­am­in­ing the impact of climbers and of cli­mate change. The ACSP also pro­vides ed­u­ca­tional op­por­tu­ni­ties that con­nect in­ter­na­tional groups of vol­un­teers and climbers with lo­cals. climber­science.org

The Moun­tain In­sti­tute

Since 1996, TMI has worked in Peru fo­cus­ing on pro­grams like Se­cur­ing Moun­tain Wa­ter, which helps com­mu­ni­ties in the An­cash Re­gion adapt to global warm­ing. By mon­i­tor­ing glacial de­cline and new lake devel­op­ment, TMI helps com­mu­ni­ties es­tab­lish front­lines against glacial-lake-out­burst floods. moun­tain.org/where-we-work/an­des
