Summary :

Somewhere on Earth is off to discover Ecuador. This little South American country is bordered by the Pacific Ocean with its long sandy beaches. The Andes cuts across north to south. This is the realm of majestic volcanoes. To the east, lies the vast Amazon Basin and its ageless forest.

Xavier left Perpignan in France 20 years ago. This ornithologist moved to Ecuador for the country’s incredible biodiversity. Always on the lookout for new discoveries, his curiosity has drawn him to the roof of Ecuador

Jorge is a ULM pilot. Whenever the weather permits, this adventurer takes to the air to slalom through the clouds and mountain peaks. Today, he’ll be helping his friend Armando study a rather surprising animal, the mountain tapir.

On the Rio Napo, the river men live in harmony with Nature. Teo is setting off for the heart of the Amazon. With one foot in his ancestral culture and the other in today’s modern world , Teo is well placed to understand this hostile environment.
