Investigating Illegal Loggers in the Intangible Zone.

In 2007 the Huaorani who live in the communities Bameno, Bowanamo, and Gabaro decided to work together to stop the wood trade in the Intangible Zone. They call themselves Ome Gompote Kiwigimoni Huaorani (We Defend Our Huaorani Territory), and are working together to protect the forest and the right of their neighbors, the Tagaeri-Taromenane family group, to live in voluntary isolation.
