The Paracas Peninsula, located in Pisco province, Ica department, was made a National Reserve thanks to the rich fauna that inhabits this territory. It includes very large colonies of sea lions, such as the Punta Arquillo and Morro Quemado.
The sea cat or chingungo, a marine otter that inhabits the more desolate rocks and beaches on Peru's central and southern coast is indigenous to the area. The Mendieta and La Catedral beaches are host to the largest registered number of these species, which are unfortunately are listed as endangered.
The Ballestas Islands are home to the largest number of sea lion colonies. The predominant varieties are the slender seal (Otaria byronia) and fur seal (Arctocephalus australis). These are always easily spotted by visitors. Other areas of interest include rock formations and caves and the variety of marine birds that inhabit them, such as the Humboldt penguin.

The first clues to the existence of the Nazca lines and geoglyphs date back to the year 1547, when Spanish historian and chronicler Cieza de León mentioned that he saw "signs in some parts of the Nazca desert." This claim was forgotten with the passage of time until, much later, they were rediscovered by the first Peruvian commercial airline pilots.
