Yasuní Initiative

My February 2012 blog Action Alert: Help Save Yasuní provided an overview of the initiative and requested readers help by signing a petition to the UK government and, if possible, making a donation to the project.

Unfortunately, the petition gained very few signatures but Mongabay reports the initiative has now raised US$300 million (8% of the required amount).  This is a significant increase on the US$116 million raised up to last year.

Ecuador has said it will give the program 13 years to obtain full funding.
