The Wildlife of Ecuadorian Amazonia (Slideshow)

There are all kinds of threats to Ecuadorian Amazonia; the oil companies are nipping at the fringes. They build roads and the illegal loggers come in. It gets cleared for palm oil and other agricultural products.

While touring the area with the Rainforest Alliance, I met Felipe Arteaga, their technical field coordinator. He is an amateur photographer, and I asked him to send me his photographs from the trip. They are a spectacular record of wildlife under threat.
