Yasuní National Park UPSC NOTE


Yasuní National Park

  • Yasuni National Park is in Ecuador between the Napo and Curaray Rivers in Napo, Pastaza, and Orellana Provinces in Amazonian Ecuador. 

  • The national park lies within the Napo moist forests ecoregion and is primarily rain forest. 

  • The park is designated a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in 1989. 

  • It is within the claimed ancestral territory of the Waorani indigenous people. 

  • Yasuni is also home to two uncontacted indigenous tribes, the Tagaeri and the Taromenane.

  • Many indigenous people use the riverways within the park as a main mode of travel. 

  • Several waterways in the area are tributaries that lead into the Amazon River, including blackwater rivers high in tannins boasting vastly different floral composition than the main riverways. 

  • A referendum on oil exploration in the national park is scheduled for August 2023.
