In out blog about the Amazon and Yasuni National Park we said we thought it would not be long before the Sani lost the battle with big oil. Well it came a lot sooner than we expected. We are sending this link so you can read it for yourselves:

Please take a look at this. Just copy and paste into your browser.

The USA was one of the nations that declined to help keep the oil in the ground and therefore will be complicit in the eventual loss of one of the most bio diverse places on earth. We can only be grateful that we got to see it before it disappears forever.

Ciao....

Thank You For The Yasuni Website.
Hi Mike and Katy. I have been receiving emails from environmental ngos about oil drilling in Yasuni National Park in Ecuador. This website from BBC sheds more light. The combined governments of the world would not pledge US$3.6 billion over 13 years to save the Yasuni, its people, and the planet from desecration. Only US$13 million was pledged in the past 3 years. Big Oil owns the governments.
