In 2012 about 200 guano workers from the Peruvian highlands travelled to Punta San Juan in Marcona, Ica Peru to dig up and bag over 5,000 tons of seabird guano built up on the reserves terrain. These guano harvests are organized every year by the Peruvian government on different peninsulas and islands where guano birds aggregate along the coast of Peru.
To reduce and mitigate the impacts from these activities, local and foreign volunteers come to the reserve to help out, monitor and spread the message of conservation of local wildlife to workers.
