Ecuador vows to protect threatened rainforest

Government says it has unique plan to save one of the world’s most diverse ecosystems from oil drilling.

One of Ecuador’s most famous rainforests, the Yasuni, is under threat from the country’s oil industry.

Environmental activists and local indigenous groups say if companies start drilling in the national park, it will destroy one of the world’s most diverse ecosystems.

But the government says it has a unique plan to preserve the park.
