LEONARDO DICAPRIO AND NEMONTE NENQUIMO JOIN FORCES
Tune in directly to the wisdom of Indigenous leader and recent TED Climate Countdown speaker Nemonte Nenquimo through an Instagram takeover exclusively on Leonardo DiCaprio’s page.
Throughout the Instagram takeover, Nemonte will lead us on a journey into the Amazon rainforest and her home in Waorani territory with on-the-ground storytelling and personal videos and photos. Nemonte’s account is also a call to action, inviting us to amplify her story and support Indigenous defenders on the frontlines.
The Waorani people won a landmark legal victory against Big Oil in 2018. Since then, Nemonte has continued to fight to keep the oil industry from destroying the rainforest that she loves. Today, the Ecuadorian government is threatening to DOUBLE oil and mining in the Amazon.
