Centro Mallqui

Centro Mallqui is a non-profit organization established in Peru in 1992. It is dedicated to the conservation, study, and sustainable use of natural and cultural resources of Perú. Our projects prioritize the work with organic bioarchaeological remains with strong connections to museums and rural tourism.

In northeastern Perú, Centro Mallqui has a research center and runs the Leymebamba Museum in Chachapoyas, Amazonas. It also curates an important archaeological collection in Ilo, on the coast in the extreme south of Perú, and participates in the design conservation of the Chiribaya Museum in the municipality of El Algarrobal.

Centro Mallqui develops educational programs for middle and high school students, as well as for graduates in bioarchaeology and forensic anthropology, and post-graduate studies in the same.
