About Yasuni

Yasuni, continental Ecuador's largest protected area, is host to impressive levels of biodiversity in the heat of the amazon tropical rain forest and also protects part of the waorani nationality territory. Species records demonstrate this biodiversity for various groups of flora and fauna, species never before registered in any other protected area. Here we find hundreds of tree species, wide rivers that overflow with the torrential rains, and large animals such as the jaguar, anaconda, and harpy eagle. We also find very small animals such as leoncillo or pocket monkey, the smallest primate in the world, and a great variety of reptiles and amphibians that make this park among the most bio-diverse in the world.
The human side of Yasuni is also full of surprises. Dwelling within the park are the tagaeri and taromenane, voluntarily isolated indigenous communities. To protect them and the biodiversity within Yasuni, in 1999 the Tagaeri-Taromenane Intangible Area was created. The National Park Yasuni, the intangible area and the adjacent waorani territory were declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 1989. 

Cultural aspects

The whole area between the Napo and Curaray rivers was home to hunter-gatherers, seminomadic people related to the waorani culture and tongue. The waorani lived in that area hunting and gathering fruits and keeping small gardens; in 1969 they were confined and grouped together in an area named a 'protectorate', located on the headwaters of the river Curaray. The clans that did not accept to live in the protectorate or that refused to abandon their way of life formed the beginnings of the Voluntarily Isolated Indigenous Communities. Today, the waorani territory extends into the west side of the park, only covering a small part of their ancient territory, while the north side of Yasuni has been granted to several oil companies. Other people that inhabit this area are the indigenous kichwa people of the Napo River baisin, that are located on the north side of the protected area, and an itinerant population of students and researchers that work in the two scientific stations located within the park and in its buffer zone.


Napo River, one o​f the main tributaries to the great Amazonas River, flows through the north side of the park, while Curaraylo flows on the southern side. Between both rivers there is a complex network of the rivers Tivacundo, Tiputini, Yasuni, Nashiño, Cononaco, and Tihuino, which make up the lower basin of the Napo. In the midst of this maze of rivers there are more than a million hectares of tropical rainforest that make up this national park.
A birds-eye view of Yasun would reveal its different topographical environments; in the central and western parts of the park there are wide plains with small hills bordered by medium streams and rivers. The nearby river banks and plains get flooded periodically when the rain intensifies, enriching by the nutrients that the rain brings with it. The hills, on the other hand, are never covered with water, and along with other no-flood areas are covered by land forests.
