Yasuni left me breathless! The beauty overwhelmed me. Thank you! We must take action! I hope the clicking and donating points all goes to save the rainforests.

The beauty and biodiversity of Yasuni National Park is overwhelming to me. The thoughts of Oil roads, rigs, etc in this probably most beautiful place on the planet, makes me sick.
Thank you for sharing this amazing video Cal.

Ecuador is an oil nation exploiting it's resources exposing the Yasuni Biosphere Reserve at the mercy of a government whose oil blocks sold to the highest bidder, whose logging roads forever change the landscape etching and tearing at the soil,flora,fauna and trees.
Endangered are over 40 species of reptiles and counting, 65 species of amphibians and counting, 60 species of fish and counting, 340 birds and counting ( did you see the size of the hummingbird's egg ?!), 70 species of mammmals and counting and 300 species of frogs and counting with an undetermined number of tree species !
Worth saving? I know we all would agree they are!
So is oil worth more than all these incredible species?
Looks like it! The problem is that there is the human factor in all of this!
Are they worth less than oil? Do their human rights not matter?
We all agree they do!
So what can be done? We know the answer to that. Send me a petition anytime!
We must advocate to protect this incredible biosphere. This could be the last and greatest paradise on Earth.

The only way this area will stay pristine is if people forget it exists--humans have an unfortunate tendency to ruin anything their hands touch!
