Ecuador's mega-diverse Yasuni National Park is again threatened by oil industry road construction as state oil company Petroamazonas has in secret constructed a road into the world-famous Amazon rainforest - violating environmental laws and threatening uncontacted indigenous tribes. More than 45% of the Yasuni National Park is now overlapped by oil concessions. Without improved oversight, Petroamazonas will likely continue building new access roads deeper into the core of the Yasuni National Park in both Blocks 31 and 43 (ITT), and future oil highways may penetrate into the core of the park, fragmenting this vital global rainforest ecosystem and threatening its biodiversity. Join in EcoInternet's over decade-long campaign to keep Yanuni National Park ecologically intact and road free.
