Save Los Cedros


Mother Earth is NOT open for business! #saveloscedros

We’re no longer petitioning for Los Cedros alone but for all 39 other Bosques Protectores similarly threatened, however we leave this site here as it contains important information about Los Cedros.

Please sign the petition now to Save ALL Ecuador Rainforests From Mining.




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.

Please sign the petition now to Save ALL Ecuador Rainforests From Mining.


Or, donate to the Save Ecuadors Rainforests Threatened by Mining!

Thank you!

    I’ve been to Los Cedros multiple times and the work done there with locals, nationals and internationals is extraordinary and should be because it is a gloriously diverse and beautiful place.

    Conozco Los Cedros, un sitio encantador de gran belleza, un bosque muy suave con muchos recursos para la vida, agua pura de manantial, pulmón para la vida, vida silvestre enriquecedora. No permitamos que atenten contra la vida del planeta, contra nuestro hogar, hagamos lo posible para mantener en funcionamiento los recursos saludables para la vida.

    If we continue to destroy habitat and oxygen producing forests, humanity will suffer the consequences, and not just the immediate indigenous peoples, but future generations.
