Ecuador Doused In Oil, Two Months After Drilling Begins – Sustainable Business

Date: Jul 24, 2014

After Ecuador issued a permit to drill for oil in Yasuni National Park in May, there’s already been one of its largest oil spills.

On July 2, state-owned oil company Petroamazonas spilled 660,000 gallons of oil into the Amazon, contaminating the Aguarico and Parahuaico rivers where the indigenous Cofan, Secoya, Kichwa and Shuar communities drink, bathe, and fish, reports Amazon Watch.
