Friends of Mother Earth,

The Los Cedros Rainforest is one of the most biologically diverse and endemic habitats on Planet Earth. It consists of 17,000 acres of cloud forest in Northwestern Ecuador.

Watch the 20-min Los Cedros film here!

The Ecuadorian Government has secretly signed a mining agreement with Canadian company “Cornerstone Capital Resources”. This agreement will allow for mining in the Choco Region, which includes Cascabel, the Los Cedros Forest and other sacred, protected forests. The Ecuadorian Government and Cornerstone are both completely disregarding existing, legal protections on the area. If we let Cornerstone in, they will destroy one of the most biologically diverse habitats on Planet Earth.

On one side, we have the forces of economic exploitation that will result in short term economic gain. On the other, we have community based conservation that has maintained sustainability and habitat protection. Who's side are you on? The voice of corporate greed is loud and the only way we can turn the tide is by creating a stronger rainforest community that supports and guards Mother Earth.

Los Cedros is the most biologically diverse habitat on Planet Earth with far more value than any short term economic gain. The agreement must be terminated and the Los Cedros Rainforest must remain protected for the future.

Call upon Cornerstone Capital Resources to STOP the mining and development activities that will result in the destruction of the Los Cedros Rainforest.

a) The acknowledgement of Los Cedros as a sacred, protected forest area. 

b) The immediate termination of the mining agreement between The Ecuadorian Government and Cornerstone Capital Resources.

c) A refrain from any future mining and development activities in the Los Cedros eco-system. 

 

There are strength in numbers.

    I passed through this region in 1979 while transiting Ecuador. Los Cedros is an incredible bio-diverse forest region that is unique and irreplaceable. It is short-sighted and extremely damaging to this rare ecosystem to allow mining or deforestation in this natural treasure. I cannot let it happen on my watch.

    As a Canadian born person, I am saddened to see that a Canadian company is posing a threat to this forest. We have such innovation these days so I can’t help but think that cutting down virgin forest is an old and dying out industry. I am sure there is nothing from this cloud forest that humans really need, whereas, the flora as fauna do. This is now much more important than any job or profit.

    Save this forest from being logged!
