The heart of the Amazon, the most biologically diverse forest on the planet which is also home to several indigenous tribes, sits on Ecuador's largest undeveloped oil reserves. The government of Ecuador has made an unprecedented proposal: Ecuador will not allow extraction of the oil fields if the world community can create a compensation trust to fund Ecuador's sustainable development into the future. Yasuni Green Gold documents and celebrates Ecuador's beauty and is a message to the world to close the region to the black gold of oil exploration.
