Fundación Hakhu Amazonía

$5,000 to support Indigenous-led campaign, communications and legal efforts seeking the cancellation of mining concessions in the Napo region of the Ecuadorian Amazon where thousands of individuals are engaged in illegal mining. Legal efforts resulted in the temporary suspensions of mining rights and a commitment from the government to address environmental damages caused to date by illegal mining, but Fundación Hakhu Amazonía is pushing for more long-term actions to protect the rights and security of impacted Indigenous communities.
