COCA, Ecuador, March 28, 2005 (ENS) - An undisturbed rainforest area of Ecuador's Yasuni National Park is about to be logged to make way for oil development. On Friday, the Ecuador Ministry of the Environment Coca office issued a logging license to the Brazilian state oil company Petrobras to cut trees in Yasuni National Park. The loggers will clear a swath for an access road, an oil processing facility, and two drilling platforms.
