Since the park’s creation, there have been several conservation projects and research, such as: 

 

The Park’s Master Plan development process that began in 1997 with the First Visioning Workshop of the Noroeste Biosphere Reserve Conservation and Sustainable Development Strategy and Cerros de Amotape National Park Master Plan. 

 

In April 1998, there was an approval workshop for Noroeste Biosphere Reserve Conservation and Sustainable Development Strategy and Cerros de Amotape National Park Master Plan. 

 

Other projects in the zone include:

 

“Sustainable development of the forests in Cerros de Amotape National Park’s zone of influence,” executed by Bosques del Norte S.A (24).

 

Also, the “Natural Protected Areas Support” Project of the World Environment Fund (FMAM), World Bank, began in 1995 (25). 

 

From April to June 2000 and February to May 2003, studies were conducted on the ecology of endemic and threatened birds in the Noroeste Biosphere Reserve. ProAves elaborated the study and it was the first bird inventory conducted in Cerros de Amotape National Park  (they registered 112 species) (26).
