You may not feel like your project is a complete success, but this result is similar to the situation at Río Blanco, a Quichua community in the Ecuadorian Amazon. Río Blanco accepts several tourist groups a month (though visitation is concentrated in the summer). Compared to the fate of many similar indigenous ecotourism projects in the Amazon, Río Blanco's can be considered a great success. However, if deforestation continues at current rates, little of the community's primary forest will be left in fifteen years.
This game is based on research into a Quichua ecotourism project in Río Blanco, Ecuador. Learn more about it in at Ecotourism Research and Other Adventures
