Victory for the Waorani people and the Amazon rainforest!

After missing the Amazon in Bolivia and Peru we decided to go there in Ecuador. We joined a 4d/3n tour which involves sleeping in a lodge in the middle of the jungle, night walks, canoeing, day hikes, piranha fishing and a community visit with a shaman demonstration and learning how to make native bread. We had loads of fun in the Amazon and took heaps of photos!!!! Many animal photos to come!!! ———————————————————————— #southamerica#southamericatrip ...
Among the largest trees in the world, kapoks have many uses in the Amazon. The bark has been used as a diuretic, aphrodisiac, to treat headaches and even type II diabetes.

They’ve been known to grow up to around 250 ft. tall, though the one i went to the top of in the video was only a mere 135 ft. The importance to the planet and beauty of these giants, as ...
2% of The Amazon lies within Ecuadorian borders and within that area live many indigenous communities and many more small cocoa farmers trying to make a living off the land.

One of my favorite species I saw while visiting the Ecuadorian Amazon was the Giant River Otter. It was fascinating to watch a family group interact and hunt fish. Giant River Otters are endangered as a result of poaching in the mid 1900s, as well as habitat loss that continues to this day. #otter#riverotter
