Mining threats the land towards Casdada de Anaconda
After new round of negotiations with the families who own the land on the East river bank from Ruku Samay towards the Anaconda Falls, Agustin found the following. There are currently 4 families (in red on the map) that rush to sell their land. The main demand comes from gold mining companies, who have been trying to invade this territory around Ruku Samay Ecolodge (in orange/green) and Rio Blanco community (in blue) for several years.The logging companies are very rich, and offer inflated prices, which is the reason for increases in the purchase price of this land, climbing up to almost $13K for one hectar.

Why helping Amazon Forest?
Amazon rainforests are one of the biggest treasures on our Planet. They are the lungs of Earth and a home to more than ¼ of all vegetal and animal species. The amazon jungle is also among few last places on Earth where people live in close connection with nature.
Zivot Postaru is a non-profit organization that strives to protect and conserve the Amazon jungle and helps its inhabitants to maintain their homes, culture and the way of living which is in accordance with and respect for the nature. Part of Amazon rainforest around the river Napo basin is being devastated by the mining and logging activities of large corporations, and also by longing for inconveniences of modern civilization that is conquering indigenous people more and more.
Zivot postaru makes efforts to help locals to find balance and sustainability in this uneasy situation. More about the project..
