Assessing The Wildlife Around Yanayacu River In Muyuna Lodge
The assessment of the wildlife around the Yanyacu River, in collaboration with the WWF® started in July 2019, sampling 6 sites in the lakes and tributaries around Muyuna. These water samples, together with the georeferenced coordinates, were sent to a research laboratory for later analysis.
A total of 137 species were identified and, as expected, fish were found to be the most abundant throughout the tested lakes and rivers. Additionally, lakes were found to be the water body, in which animal groups were mostly identified, as Graph 2 suggests. The main reason due to the nonexistent water flows, allowing more available time to test and reach the required accuracy.
