The Synopsis 

WILD HOPE highlights global stories of intrepid changemakers who are restoring and

protecting our planet through hyper-local initiatives that generate measurable progress.

Whether tapping oysters to clean New York Harbor, or growing coffee to save

Mozambican rainforests, the series reveals how bold interventions and unexpected

alliances can spark powerful change. With compelling storytelling, unforgettable

characters and breathtaking cinematography, WILD HOPE is an antidote to this era of

ecological anxiety.

Javier Robayo is a ecuadorian conservationist and biologist. Robayo is the executive director of the nonprofit Fundación EcoMinga that protects 27,000 acres of Ecuador’s Tropical Andes and Choco forests. During his expeditions he’s been a part of the discovery of ten orchid species in addition to two species of rodents, a genus frog and amphibians. It is no surprise that he made the “50 People Changing The World”  last year in The Explorers Club.

I spoke to Javier Robayo via Zoom to discuss his participation in Wild Hope. Robayo spoke about his active duty to defend the rights of nature and how “rights of nature” today are in Ecuador’s constitution. As well as to what he brings to episode four, Does Nature Have Rights?
