This story, published by Amazon Watch, honors the life and legacy of Rosa Moreno, a nurse who dedicated over 30 years of her life to treating cancer and fighting on the frontlines of a dire environmental health crisis in her Amazonian village of San Carlos. San Carlos is located near dozens of Superfund sites or open-air pits filled with toxic oil sludge. These dump sites, presently owned by the American-based Chevron Corporation, continue to funnel waste into the local drinking water sources. Photo credit: Amazon Watch
