World Wildlife Fund
The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) has generously funded guard posts, guard training, outboard motors, patrol canoes, and cars within the park, and more recently, efforts at environmental education and alleviation of rural poverty in small communities near the park's inhabited southeastern and southern extremes. WWF's funding has been essential in making Manu one of the few seriously protected parks in tropical South America.

The Center for Environmental Research and Conservation (CERC), a consortium of five education and research institutions, was created in response to critical environmental concerns facing the Earth.

UNESCO MAN and the Biosphere (MAB)
