Napo Wildlife Centre works direct with the Quichua community of Añangu. It is the only first class, community-based lodge within Yasuni National Park and is 100% owned by the community.
They started the lodge construction by themselves in about 1998 as ecotourism was identified by them as their way to preserve their land, culture and traditions and give a better future to their children.
Flights are automatically carbon offset through The Travel Forest, which plants 10 indigenous trees on your behalf (currently in northern Tanzania). Whilst the primary motivation for planting the trees is to offset carbon emissions, the project also works as a poverty alleviation and environmental improvement scheme.
