The Yasuni Biosphere Reserve is home to an outstanding diversity of life. It holds about 30% of the mammals of the entire Amazon Basin; about 644 tree species in one hectare; the 150 amphibian species documented to date is a world record among comparable landscapes. Over 560 bird species have been recorded, one of the highest known totals in the world.
The conservation of all this diversity of life is urgent and the public must become more aware of its importance for the sake of future generations.

Amazon Wildlife Sting Ray

We want to share a cool Amazon Wildlife video this time, check for the River Sting Ray found during a nature trip deep in the Yasuni Biosphere Reserve in Ecuador.

River Stingrays are the only batoids (skates, saw fish and sharkes) completely restricted to fresh water habitats. They have a venomous caudal sting, and are one of the most feared freshwater fishes in the Amazon Rainforest. However, they are not dangerous unless stepped on or otherwise threatened.
