Narupa Reserve protects tropical forest just above the Amazon lowlands. World Land Trust (WLT) part funded an extension to the reserve in 2013.
Narupa Reserve consists of tropical forest and is located in the Napo Province of north east Ecuador. This area protects some of the remaining foothill forest at an altitude of 1,100 metres above sea level on the east slope of the Andes, just above the Amazon lowlands.
The reserve is situated close to the Río Hollin, between the volcanoes Antisana and Sumaco. There is a plan to provide visitor facilities there in the future, and to increase the area and altitudinal range of the protected land.

The area is endemic-rich and home to several globally threatened bird species, in particular the Military Macaw (Ara militaris) and Coppery-chested Jacamar (Galbula pastazae).
