An exceptional amateur video confirms the birth of three Giant Otters (Pteronura brasiliensis) in the wetlands within the territory of the Añangu Kichwa community. In Ecuador, the species’ conservation status is categorized as Critically Endangered after decades of indiscriminate hunting. One of the most prized treasures we protect is this otter that in Añangu has a safe refuge with enough fish to stay and reproduce. In all the Amazon basin, we are the closest place to a provincial capital (in this case El Coca, Orellana province) in which the presence of this and other large species can be enjoyed within the Yasuní National Park. This aquatic carnivore, the most threatened in South America with its six feet in length, noisy and easy to detect, has few effective refuges where the few remaining family groups can thrive without the threat of fishing nets and hunters. We can proudly confirm that Añangu is one of those places.
