The present research work consists of the analysis and description of the changes in the pluvial dynamics in the Amazon River, in the district of Santa Sofía (Colombian Amazon), in the period 1981-2020; This, in order to analyze the relationship between the rainfall dynamics of the Amazon River and the formation of bars in the village of Santa Sofía where the charapa turtle (Podocnemis expansa) nests. By conducting two multitemporal analyzes: the first directed towards the behavior of precipitation in the Amazon River basin and the second directed towards the behavior of the bars located in the study area, in order to contrast the dynamics of the bars and the dynamics of the rain that affects the village of Santa Sofía. Determining the sectors with the greatest and least affect based on the pluvial dynamics, which can be seen expressed in the disappearance or creation of bars; being understood, that the bars are a unit of land that are formed on a body of water, and it is related to the modification of the nesting sites of the charapa turtle, thus causing the increase in the probability of disappearance of the species in the village of Santa Sofía. A greater variation was identified in the conditions of the bars in one sector in contrast to the other sectors located in the study area.
