The biggest problem faced in the Ecuadorian Amazon is the exploitative extraction of natural resources by the fossil fuel industry. This leads to aggressive deforestation and, ultimately, the displacement of indigenous communities and loss of autonomy over their livelihoods. The Hakhu Project is an indigenous-led organization that supports community-based initiatives as a way to generate positive social change while protecting indigenous territories and the planet.
