The advocacy organization Survival International Indigenous Peoples has launched an information campaign to raise awareness among tourists visiting Machu Picchu, in southern Perú, the "plight" Quechua communities living the 'Sacred Valley' of the Urubamba river, a hundred kilometers from the historic place.

Survival International has delivered leaflets to tourists in highlighting the situation of indigenous tribesmen and Mashco Nanti-Piro, who live in protected reserves Kugapakori Nahua, Nanti buffer zone established around the Manu National Park.

According to the organization, this campaign has been carried out now because the Government of Perú plans to use the land for hydrocarbon exploration in the area, becoming the energy project "bigger" and "notorious" in the country.
