Over the course of two weeks, Guttman Community College fellow Ayanna Dickinson traveled to different cities and towns in Ecuador to collect stories of those who have chosen to fight for their own ecosystems. Here she examines the relationship between Ecuadorian culture and conservation, as well as the illustrated importance of protecting great ecosystems such as the Chocoan Rainforest.
