Below, two team banners seen on the wall behind Vikky as she prepares for a television appearance. The banner at left bears ancient Tiahuanaco designs on the borders, as well as two local butterfly species as main motives.
Each Eco Team had their own banner. All featured beautiful local species.
Each individual member of the EcoTeams painted their own banner if they chose to. Here Jessica's banner showing girls leading the movement to save nature.
Girls in a mountain village record eco-messages for local radio.

All members learn survival and self-defense skills. The kids loved it. No ball sports at the Earthgardens.
Symbol of the Guardabosques. Elite teams of boys age 12-18. All banners and photos of this group were confiscated by the Bush Administration's sabotage of the movement in 2002. There is great need of these local forces protecting forests from burning in the Amazon. Support this group. You may donate historic daggers or contribute funds for the re-establishment of the Guardabosques next year in Bolivia, Peru, Brazil and Ecuador.
Here Griselda holds the shield of the Sembradores in Concepcion, Bolivia.
