Listening to the Ecuador's rainforest

Ecuador is home to one of the world’s most diverse ecosystems. Ecosystems are made of interdependent beings that need to be nurtured. But the Ecuadorian government pays no heed. In April 2020 the Amazon here was severely wounded by an oilspill: pipelines had collapsed in a landslide, itself provoked by a hydroelectric dam. All was contaminated - water, soil, plants, wildlife, and Indigenous Peoples, such as the Kichwa, who were already affected by the Covid pandemic. The world is one, the world is forest, says the Sapara Nation in its Kamunguishi Declaration. To start healing, listen to the rainforest.
