Aracamuni 3

This is a 360 degree view of a March 2018 very high resolution Digital Globe satellite image of Cerro Aracamuni in La Neblina National Park (Amazonas), part of the Protected Area of the RBAOC where all mining is ILLEGAL. A small river that is being destroyed by mining is visible. Its river bed has been clearly intervened and the rainforest has been removed, leaving large black ponds of water. This is being illegally mined in complete clandestinity by FARC/ELN Colombian guerrilla. The mines here stretch over 50 hectares.
