Oil exploitation and the southern Ecuador Amazon

Met with the team at the University Simon Bolivar in Quito - we have been working on modelling the potential impacts of oil exploitation in the Southern Ecuador Amazon that still remains largely forested. The northern section has suffered from deforestation and pollution and there are major concerns for what will happen if oil exploitation occurs. Our journey will take us through oil exploited regions and untouched areas and we will update you in the state of the area.... Expedition starts next week....
