Amazon Bird Surveys & Ecotourism with Waorani

We no longer offer this Life Net Nature team project.  If you are interested in helping add to the Waorani Reserve bird list or in making an ecotourism excursion to the Waorani Reserve, please contact Tropic Journeys at                               

Our project in 2012 did canoe and trail surveys of birds and mist-netting at two camps to record avifauna in Waorani Reserve, along the Shiripuno River in the Amazon of Ecuador.  We shared our information about birds and birding with local guides and community members to enhance ecotourism efforts there. 

The volunteer donation covered food and lodging at Waorani Ecolodge, and all in-country flights and travel.
