current work

The summer of 2019 was our first operational trip. Several groups of graduate students, researchers and undergraduates were hosted by the Waorani community at Iyarina’s satellite center in Gomataon.

We are currently seeking funds to support full commercialization within Waorani and Achuar communities that are a part of our network.


A two hour bus ride from Iyarina through small communities over many waterways, is the bridge where the canoe ride begins. Two and a half hours, up the Nushino River deep in the Amazon Rainforest is the community of Gomataon.
