We wrote a story about the flowering of the Guayacanes in Mangahurco. The beginning of what we call The Golden Forest of Ecuador. We include real data, invented names and other elements to create this short story.
Sad news and outcome of the release that took place a few months ago of the rescued condor Iguiñaro who was rehabilitated by Fundación Zoológica de Ecuador. He was found wounded with a pellet in his body. It is unforgivable to hunt down this critically endangered species.
It was a 75-day trip, 75 stories of this great adventure. It was more than great actually, because of everything that crossed in my way, because of the few places I planned to see and the many more places that I didn’t plan to see; because of the people I met and the experiences I retained on each path towards a new destination.
You may have heard a bit about palm oil and why it’s bad for you and the environment. We will tell you the key points of the consequences in life itself from the production of derivatives of this product. Keep in mind that palm oil has other names with which it remains hidden in the list of ingredients on the labels of the items that you are surely consuming every day but you don’t know contain palm oil.
People hunt them down for their skin, for their bones, for their fangs, genitals and their eyes, or for having them as a trophy or for making wine. Tigers die for money and for a belief that their body parts have medicinal properties. People kill them, but do you know why it is so important that they live? Their survival is your survival.
Just over 200 tigers remain in the wild. Their imposing presence in temples in Bhutan, their face in symbols and coats of arms of countries like Malaysia, with the meaning of bravery and strength for the Malays, they are the inspiration of millions around the world. Day by day they fight to survive with the help of organizations and people, and you can be one of them.
Thousands of species from all over the world share threats created by humans. Some unnecessary activities are avoidable and would greatly help all the flora and fauna of the planet, especially the 19 species that are in critical danger of extinction.
On Instagram we found the best photos of the Amur Leopard, a subspecies of Leopards that are fighting to survive. In the wild there are only 80 left. Look at what the world is about to lose and what you can do to help them.
From above we see you burn, I see you burn and die slowly. Everything that once lived for millions of years is now falling and disappearing. For now it’s the smoke that prevents us from seeing what’s happening there, in the lung of the Earth, in the heart of this hell, but we can imagine it.

On Twitter there’s a contest called # ReyArupo2019, we do not know who created it but it is very interesting. We decided to join this initiative so we searched hundreds of photos on Instagram and Twitter to choose the best 10 photos of Arupos + 5 honorable mentions! Thanks to all who shared and tagged us in their photos. Here are the winners!
Thousands of species are threatened by human activities, only few manage to increase their population. Illegal hunting, deforestation, the black market, the expansion of humans and other factors are jeopardizing the survival of many animals, including 20 that are part of the WWF’s list catalogued as critically endangered of extinction.
The human is a threat to thousands of species in the world. Their direct or indirect actions have extinguished thousands of animals, have put hundreds of them in critical danger and have affected the majority of their population. Now, almost every time we buy something, we don’t know, we don’t ask or don’t want to know about its origin or the impact and importance they have on nature. Let’s not look the other way, and let’s see how we can help the survival of thousands of animals, even ours.
