Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Cuyabeno Wildlife Reserve is a humid tropical rainforest protected zone in the Sucumbios Province, Ecuador, founded on 26 July 1979. At an altitude of 200- 280 meters, one of the principle objectives of the 6,033.8 square kilometres (2,329.7 sq mi) Cuyabeno Reserve is ongoing conservation of the complex Amazonian ecosystem. The reserve is a complex of rivers, lagoons and floated forest. The protected area is characterized by its high biodiversity and interaction and cooperation between the species inhabiting the area. Its 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. It is considered to be one of the most biodiverse sites in the world together with the neighboring Yasuni National Park.show more
