President Correa, Don’t Auction the Amazon for Oil

Online petition site, Care2, is gathering signatures to show solidarity behind the movement to halt auctioning off giant swaths of pristine Amazon rainforest for oil exploitation.

The petition will be delivered to Ecuador’s President Rafael Correa once the signature goal of 42,000 is met.

Let’s join together to let our global voice be heard that oil exploitation in the world’s most biodiverse region is unacceptable and only garners short-term gain for long-term travesty.

Thank you.
