My name is Daniel Silva and I am the co founder of Ecuastock.com, an image bank from Ecuador, the country where I live, in which it's incomparable biodiversity faces a serious problem. We have met an easy way to Face the problem through photography.
Firstly, it is important that you know that Ecuador is a small country located at South America where there are extensive areas of the amazon jungle, mountains, coast, and the Galápagos Islands. Thousands of animal species exist in these zones. In a portion of the Yasuni National Park, for example, there are more native species than in all of North America.
But, we need your help
There is a serious problem in this magical place. Many of these unique species are in serious danger of extinction, due mainly to the indiscriminate logging in forests, petroleum exploitation, unauthorized fishing, exotic animal trafficking, lack of support from the communities, expansion of the civilization, etc.
For this reason, we need your contribution to impede the ruthless hand of man continuing to put an end to thousands of millions of years of evolution.
What we need and what you get
The immediate goal requires a lot of help. We need to raise $150,000.00 that will serve to make the first steps.
Why is it so important to save these species?
There are 3 main reasons why these species should be saved.
1. From the beginning of time human beings have been dedicated to invade, extract and finish with the natural resources without realizing the real risk to our planet. Each time that we use skins or feathers, consume exotic dishes, acquire pieces of ivory, or simply run our cars with gasoline or buy furniture, we are generating irreversible damage to the planet, ending thousands of species of flora and fauna that come from these places where the resources are extracted. To be realistic, we are going to continue to use those resources, and it is worth it to give back to the planet through an act of generosity and gratitude. This act is only a small part of what we are seizing from the earth.
2. In this small country, one will find one of the oldest biodiverse reserves on the planet, with species of flora and fauna that are unique. These species contribute to scientific investigation, the development of vaccines used by humans, and of course for recreation and ecological tourism. It would be a crime to permit the extraction of one of the greatest treasures because of negligence or not acting soon enough.
Here are some examples of the species that declare this space as an ecological sanctuary:
3. The third reason is because we can. If we do not help, nobody else will. Now finally we have the capacity for thousands who worry about the planet to join to together easily using technology and social media. We can create communities that didn't used to exist. We can create consciousness. We can generate change from our places of work simply making sure that people see what happens In the forgotten corners of the planet. We can contribute seemingly insignificant values that sum up to the greatest help that independent hands have been able to generate. This is our cause and our dream and you can make it a reality.
