NARUPA RESERVE EXPANSION 2018
The Narupa Reserve is located in the Napo bioregion of northeast Ecuador, one of the most biodiverse regions in the world. Just north of the Narupa Reserve, in the Sumaco Napo Galeras National Park, 872 species of birds have been recorded, exemplifying the importance of this habitat. The 2,259-acre reserve, founded in 2010, protects threatened species from illegal logging, deforestation and agricultural expansion. This area is in urgent need of protection due to easily accessible roads and high development and encroachment threats.
