End Deforestation to Protect Rare Forests of Ecuador

Target: Lorena Tapia, Minister of Environment, Ecuador

Goal: End the deforestation of Ecuador’s rare dry forests and their habitats.

Ecuador’s rare dry forests are being destroyed at an alarming rate, not by climate change, but by deforestation. These forests in the south of Ecuador, home to endangered species and valuable natural resources, must be protected.

Dry forests are a rare natural habitat. They’re home to both wood and non-wood products. They also regulate the ground’s water intake and prevent erosion. However, deforestation is destroying their lands, only worsening the effects of climate change.

The rare dry forests of Ecuador must be protected. Sustainable measures must be put in place so this land, its resources, and the living things which call it home can thrive. Sign the petition to demand that deforestation be brought to an end.


Dear Minister Tapia,

Mankind is destroying your nation’s rare dry forests through deforestation. In fact, it’s deforestation directly, not climate change, that is robbing your nation of this rare natural landscape.

Dry forests are home to rare species, as well as valuable natural resources. They also control erosion and the land’s water balance. They must be protected and their deforestation must come to an end. I demand that you and your government implement sustainable measures that protect these forests and the unique role they play in our ecosystem.
