Improper oil exploration and development practices have the full potential to destroy sensitive tropical ecosystems and the cultures of indigenous people, just as it happened in Ecuador as a result of Texaco's oil operations. Our research has led us to conclude that there is a lack of communication among all stakeholders involved and a lack of informed public participation. We developed two recommendations to improve dialogue among all stakeholders involved and to better represent the concerns of the indigenous people.
