A group of tourists is seen on a boat at the Limoncoha lake, next to the Yasuni Ecuadorean National Park, in the Orellana Province,Ecuador, on June 16, 2012. The Yasuni National Park contains Ecuador�s largest oil reserves, but its exploitation would imply impacts to pristine ecosystems, particularly watersheds. In 2007, the government of Rafael Correa offered the proposal of not allowing extraction of the Ishpingo-Tambococha-Tiputini (ITT) oil fields in Yasuni, if the world community compensates to leave the oil permanently in the ground.Ecuador will propose at the Rio+20 summit the environmental project, launched in 2010 to prevent the extraction of 846 million barrels of crude oil from the Amazonian Yasuni rainforest, after the country obtained a contribution from international donors of 116,9 million US dollars this first year.
