Posing Monkeys and Clay-Licking ParrotsTo access the stunning Napo Wildlife Center, located in Yasuni National Park, we traveled via canoe through the Amazon rainforest. This was my first of many monkey sightings and he was the perfect model to pose so nicely for me. The center is part of the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and opened in 2003. As well as posing monkeys, you can spot over 610 species of bird, hike forest trails, and watch hundreds of luminous parrots licking clay.
