Huaorani Expeditions

General information

Occupying an area of 30.000 km2 with a population of about 2,800 individuals, surrounded by the Yasuni National Park, the largest protected park of Ecuador, declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 1979, inhabit the "Huaorani" or the "People", called " The Aucas" by civilization, and also inhabit the "Tagaeri" - "Taromenani" or "red leg".


The latter are one of the few indigenous cultures or tribes not contacted yet by civilizations that are currently in Ecuador and are part of our intangible cultural heritage, with protection, care and respect of all the neighboring societies.

The Huaorani currently inhabit in what are today provinces of Napo, Pastaza and Orellana. Although the first Huaoranis were nomadic, now have been forced to set their limits within the Yasuni National Park and its protected zone.

The Amazonas ecosystem, particularly its tropical rain forest, is considered to be one of the richest and most complex communities of plant and animal life in the world. The region is characterized by huge and diverse amounts of flora and fauna with extraordinary variations in their habitats and micro­ habitats.

In the jungle of the Upper Amazon 100 species of trees per acre have been recorded. In Central America, only up to 40 species per acre have been discovered. In the temperate forests of North America and Europe, rarely more than 20 different species exist per acre.

The Amazon's rivers, lakes, streams and marshlands support over 600 species of fish and more than 250 species of amphibians and reptiles. The lagoons of the Napo and Aguarico River basins are home to colonies of two species of caimans that grow to over 13 feet in length.
