What is Yasuní?

Yasuní Although we are not certain as to the origin of the word Yasuní, local communities usuallyrefer to it as “a sacred land”.

Yasuní is a metaphor for the infinite nature of God’s creation; it symbolizes the abundance of life onEarth, it speaks of a world that shall never be discovered in its entirety, a miracle that shall neverbe completely understood. In practical terms, it is the most biodiverse ecosystem on earth. Intechnical terms it is a “quadruple taxonomic richness center”; a place that—in only one hectare—contains more living organisms than the entire European continent; a protected tract of land inwhich more than a third of all Amazonian mammals are found, including a staggering 60% of allNew World wild cats; a tropical garden where only a handful of trees holds as many insect speciesas the entire United States of America; and don’t forget… Yasuní is home to the Yasuni KichwaEcolodge.

Yasuní also represents our need to protect . . . our solidarity with nature; of thinking beyond ourhuman world and understanding that we are an integral part of a greater whole. Yasuní KichwaEcolodge Staying with us is not only an opportunity to experience a deep and unique naturaladventure, but a place to unwind and enjoy to the fullest, with exquisite culinary examples ofEcuadorian Amazonia.
