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. 

By signing this petition, you are demanding:

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.

Sign the petition now! Or, donate to the Save Los Cedros Campaign on Fund My Planet!

Thank you!

    We need to protect the remaining old growth forests around the world. A mega diverse cloud forest like Los Cedros is too precious to be exploited by a mining company. It should be saved from any form of disturbance and be conserved as a natural heritage for now and for future generations.

    Los Cedros is one of the most beautiful places on the planet. They are not making forests like this anymore. Please for the love of life, let Los Cedros be.

    I have explored Ecuador for years experiencing the beauty of its pristine wilderness. I’m so sorry to feel it endangered…..

    Please stop letting things like this happen. Don’t you understand that once it’s gone, we can never get it back the way it was? You cannot change the past, please, help protect our future.
