Our Geo Quiz today takes us into the rainforest. The Achuar live in a piece of the Amazon rainforest in South America. Their ancestral territory of roughly 2 million acres is just south of the equator. It straddles the two countries we'd like you to name.

These are the two western-most countries in South America. The weather in this equatorial jungle region is usually very warm and humid with heavy rains all year round.

The Achuar have struggled to protect their land from logging and oil interests. Now they're trying limited tourism as a way to preserve and protect their way of life.

We pay a visit to one of the Achuar ancestral communities and listen in on the sounds of the rainforest.
