Amazon Natural Park & Nauta Caño, 2/4/2020, Delfin II

  • Aboard the Delfin II

The second full day of our expedition on the amazingly bio-diverse Peruvian Upper Amazon, we had an early visit to the Amazon Natural Park. In this privately owned reserve, we crossed a small lagoon on catamarans, then walked to a long suspension bridge. We had the privilege to walk in a primary forest and listen to our expert Delfin II naturalists talking about several plant species and about some fascinating aspects of the ecology of the rainforest of the Neotropics.

In the afternoon, we explored Nauta Caño by skiff rides. This beautiful creek is covered with thick vegetation where our naturalists and skiff drivers spotted several species of colorful birds like macaws and toucans as well as some three-toed sloths and a couple of squirrel and night owl monkey troops.
