Para Falls and the Caura Reserve

Para Falls and the Caura Reserve

The Caura Reserve is a fluvial system with dense forests, practically untouched by agricultural and other human commercial development, primarily because of its inaccessibility. As one of the most pristine ecosystems in South America, the Caura basin and its inhabitants remain a tantalizing mystery to conservation biologists. The lack of human activity in the region leads us to believe that the Caura is a thriving ecosystem that may contain many species unknown to science. In this program we travel to a little known spot in the Caura Reserve, the Para Falls. About a dozen falls a hundred feet tall form a lagoon where the only noises heard are those of the water and jungle around it. Here we see fascinating landscapes of the river, jungle, and islands; as well as fauna of the region and Indian villages that make this an unforgettable eco journey. 05/10DE JSCA 30 min.
