Pueblo Originario Kichwa de Sarayaku

$5,000 to support the Kichwa Indigenous peoples of Sarayaku in the Ecuadorian Amazon launch event of their pioneering Kawsak Sacha, or ‘Living Forest’ proposal to create a new category for permanent protection of native land free of natural resource extraction and further support their ongoing efforts that to date have kept an estimated 100 million barrels of oil in the ground and protected a de-facto no-go-zone beneath 330,000 acres of standing primary, roadless rainforest.
