Since 2006, Zoë Tryon has lived and worked with the Achuar, Shuar, Kichwa and Waorani peoples in the Ecuadorian Amazon and Andes. "Living in a tribal community, there is no "I" in team. You're accountable there," she says. "Every behavior that I do there can affect another person."
Given her privileged upbringing in Wiltshire, England, she admits that she "still feels like an outsider" in the Amazon. Of course, she says, there are "always amusing moments when I feel a really part of it and connected…and then I'm like, 'Noooo. Not at all.'" That being said, she comments that, "At the end of the day, we are one tribe, we are one species."
Tune into this podcast to hear her explorations through the Amazon; her fight for the people of the area; and her charming stories -- from her fashion faux pas in the Amazon to her run-in with a crocodile.

In Lynn Saunder's words,"I have a pretty good survival story from November 2008 involving a plane crash in the very remote jungles of Ecuador. I was doing some ecological engineering consulting at a remote jungle ecolodge that is accessed only by plane or a several day canoe ride. The day of the crash, I was leaving the lodge to catch another flight to the capital Quito and then to fly home to Chicago the following day.
I was riding up front in the little 4-seater Cessna with the captain; the other two passengers consisted of my field assistant and an Achuar resident and employee of the ecolodge. (The Achuar are an indigenous people in whose territory the ecolodge is located) . We were several hundred feet above the forest canopy when the plane failed for unknown reasons and began to go down. The sound was deafening as we crashed through the multiple forest layers until we eventually hit ground. Bam. We hit hard. The plane was totaled and it is amazing that we all survived."
