Yasuni National Park is in Ecuador with an area of 9,820 km2 between the Napo and Curaray rivers in Napo and Pastaza provinces in Amazonian Ecuador. The national park lies within the Napo moist forests ecoregion and is primarily rain forest. The park is about 250 km from Quito and was designated a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in 1989. It is within the claimed ancestral territory of the Huaorani indigenous people. Yasuni is home to two uncontacted indigenous tribes, the Tagaeri and the Taromenane.BiodiversityYasuni National Park is arguably the most biologically diverse spot on Earth. The park is at the center of a small zone where amphibian, bird, mammal, and vascular plant diversity all reach their maximum levels within the Western Hemisphere. Moreover, the park breaks world records for local-scale (less than 100 km2) tree, amphibian, and bat species richness, and is one of the richest spots in the world for birds and mammals at local scales as well.

  • It's been an amazing opportunity to visit one of the most biodiverse places of the planet, totally recommended
  • Visited the Tiputini Biodiversity Station (Universidad San Francisco de Quito) in the heard of the Yasuni. It was one of the most beloved experiences of my life. The beauty of pure nature is magical. We has humans need to protect these precious ecosystems into the future. Unfortunately the starting point in the town Coca needs some help in correcting it's pollution standards. Education is where it starts...
  • Once a true Pre-christianity paradise, now colonization, deforestation, illegal logging and unsustainable hunting are noticeably affecting the park and bucket-list tourism sure does not help either.
