Telegraph - UK by Chris Moss Once again the Huaorani Ecolodge featured on the news: "Ecuador The headwaters of the Amazon in Ecuador are widely recognised as the site of some of the greatest biodiversity on Earth. The government is still contemplating exploiting the oil reserves in the Yasuní region but, for now at least, tourism provides a counterweight to the economic pressures. Indigenous tribes such as the Huaorani and the Shuar and the more integrated Quechua communities accommodate visitors at basic lodges along the banks of several tributaries. Lodges are often isolated and getting to one may involve a flight – while boat trips are special, a small plane offers the best vantage point for seeing the full grandeur of the canopy. Highlights include the indigenous tribes, ceibo trees, Huaorani Ecolodge and campsite, hummingbirds, blue morpho butterflies, the Yasuní Biosphere Reserve"

Journey Latin America, British tour operator ranks the Huaorani Ecolodge as BEST FOR CULTURAL INTERACTION http://www.journeylatinamerica.co.uk/papagaio/Top5/jungle-lodges.aspx A stay at Huaorani Ecolodge offers a unique rainforest experience, coupled with an intimate insight into the lives and culture of the Huaorani tribal people. While the lodging is basic, the profound impact of forging a connection with the living culture of a jungle tribe is what sets it apart. Visitors will discover first-hand how people live in remote jungle communities, how they make use of the forest's resources, and the ill effects of oil exploration on them and their lands. Bring your sense of adventure: you'll arrive by light aircraft and dugout canoe, and learn how to set traps, make fire without matches, build a shelter in minutes, use a blowgun, practice the perfect swing of the machete and catch fish in jungle lagoons.

Another great piece about our ecotourism programas in Ecuador. Thanks to A&K and Chris Moss for your support on this one. Ecuador: Tribal Tales Home to the Huaorani Indians, Ecuador’s Amazonian rainforest is one of the world’s most biologically rich strips of land, where travellers can learn to hunt with a blowpipe, shin up trees barefoot, summon birds and spot monkeys. Yet despite being a region of unequivocal beauty, the threat of oil drilling hangs heavily in the air. Read the article here: http://www.natgeotraveller.co.uk/where/ecuador/75331/
