More details about this trip:
Shiripuno Amazon Lodge is located within the remote Yasuni Biosphere Reserve and is surrounded by miles of unbroken pristine tropical Ecuadorian Amazon Rainforest, providing an extraordinary set of opportunities for Birdwatching one of the world's biodiversity hotspots.
The Yasuni Biosphere Reserve is arguably the most biologically diverse spot on earth. The park is at the center of a small zone where amphibian, bird, mammal, and vascular plant diversity all reach their maximum levels in the western hemisphere. Additionally, the park breaks records for local-scale (less than 100 km² ) tree, amphibian, and bat species, and is one of the richest spots in the world for birds and mammals at local numbers as well.
Yasuni also is home to at least 596 bird species which comprises one-third of the total native bird species for the Amazon.
The park holds a record number of 150 amphibian species for places with comparable landscapes. It also is at the top for amphibian diversity compared to other sites sampled in the western Amazon. The total of its amphibian species exceeds that of the United States and Canada combined. Reptile species in the park is also very high with 121 documented species found. Despite covering less than 0.15% of the Amazon Basin, Yasuni is home to approximately one-third of amphibian and reptile species. The park wet areas hold high levels of fish diversity with 382 known species.
