Yahoo / Reuters Peru's Rainforest Natives Pin Future on Ecotourism: "Members of the local 400-strong community, comprising some 80 surviving families of the Ese'eja tribe and ``colonos'' like Cesar, the descendants of settlers who moved to the area from the slopes of the towering Andes, now have a major stake in one of the jungle lodges dotted along the Tambopata. They help run and manage the lodge, to which tourists and avid bird watchers alike flock to see the myriad-colored Macaws and parrots that inhabit their 24,700 acres area of verdant rain forest. They also take a sizable slice of the profits." I have been surprised at the number of ecotourism ventures that have sprung up in the Amazon.
