Ecuadorians vote to end oil drilling in parts of the Amazon

  • In a historic decision, Ecuadorians voted against oil drilling in a protected area of the Amazon that is home to two uncontacted tribes and is a biodiversity hotspot.
  • With over 90% of the ballots counted, around six in ten Ecuadorians rejected oil exploration in Block 44 within Yasuni National Park, which is one of the world's most biodiverse regions.
  • The outcome represents a significant blow to Ecuadorian President Guillermo Lasso, who supported oil drilling, and as a result, the state oil company Petroecuador will be required to dismantle its operations in the coming months.
