Kichwa community commits to eco-sustainable tourism
Paolo Moiola

On the banks of the Napo River and in front of the Yasuní National Park, Sani Isla holds out against the oil industry.

Sani Isla is the name of a Kichwa indigenous community of a thousand people living on the banks of the Napo River, in front of the Yasuní National Park. In recent years, the community has had to face the expansionist efforts of the oil companies, first the US oil company Occidental Petroleum (OXY) and then the Ecuadorian Petroamazonas company. The first one left, the second one has also begun to operate within neighboring Yasuní, a world treasure trove of biodiversity and home to some ethnic groups living in isolation. After some hesitations, however, the community of Sani Isla has chosen the path of eco-sustainable tourism, craftwork, and forestry, distancing itself from the sirens of the oil companies. At least for the time being.see more
