   DESCRIPTION

Description

 

One of the principle objectives of the Cuyabeno Fauna Breeding Reserve is ongoing conservation of the Amazonian ecosystem- the most complex ecosystem in the world.

 

This protected area is characterised by its high biodiversity and interaction and cooperation between the species inhabiting the area. The Reserve’s geomorphology is a consequence of the rivers carrying sediment and materials from the Andes , principally by River Aguarico, which is considered as white water due to the sediment it drags raising water levels and therefore ensuring that the river is navigable all year round.
