The Pachamama Alliance December Newsletter
Our monthly newsletter updates you on our work with our indigenous
partners in Ecuador and our workshops around the world.
In spite of Ecuador’s official announcement in late November inviting oil companies to bid on millions of acres of pristine Amazon rainforest, we’re optimistic this land will remain untouched.

Our indigenous partners have successfully resisted similar threats over the last 20 years, and they’re stronger and more determined now. The oil industry itself considers these lands risky for oil extraction, and even President Correa has stated that 40 years of oil “development” has not brought Ecuador lasting prosperity.

Plus, we have committed allies like you standing with us around the world.

She recorded the visit in these beautiful photos that show you the human face of what’s at stake if new oil exploitation moves forward.
