The outstanding biological diversity of Yasuni makes it a noteworthy Amazon destination. Located in northeast Ecuador, the UNESCO Yasuni Biosphere Reserve and National Park is one of few places in the world where plant, mammal, amphibian, and bird species all reach their maximum biodiversity. Throughout wetlands, marshes, swamps, lakes, rivers and tropical rainforest, scientists have registered more than 500 species of birds! Visitors keep an eye out for hard to spot animals such as jaguars, harpy eagles, pumas and tapirs. The Yasuni National Park is also claimed ancestral land of the Huaorani indigenous peoples; communities such as the Tagaeri and Taromenane have chosen to live deep in the jungle in voluntary isolation.
