The Yasuní National Park is one of the most important on our planet. It harbors and protects incredible biodiversity, yet it is endangered by the oil extraction that wrought havoc on the eastern parts of the Ecuadorian Amazon, known as Oriente.
Eastern slopes of the Andes are the humid world if the jungles. Incredible amounts of the rain are showering the rainforest, where many streams are born. Jungle of Zanja Arajuno in Ecuador is one of these wild places.
The Eastern Andes are extremely rich in water. Fed by extraordinary humidity, numerous rivers are born here and which flows towards the Amazon basin. One of them is Río Anzu in Ecuador, where I have spent several days.
During my Ecuador expedition, I visited the village of Shuars, a tribe of Amazon Indians. Despite the invasion of the “civilization”, these people still live in harmony with the jungle and the rivers.
