Yanayacu & Pucate river

Aug 27, 2019 - Delfin II


Along the main Marañon River there are many small rivers and creeks, which are easy to explore aboard the skiffs. Today we explored Yanayacu and Pucate Rivers, which merge together just before becoming a tributary of the main river. In a few more months, many areas will be flooded, changing the whole system, and the animals and plants will have to adjust to a different world.
