A protective action was presented for the violation of rights of nature because, since 2016, Mr. Carlos Dávila Granda has carried out an indiscriminate felling of a Mangrove adjacent to the property of which the plaintiff is a co-owner, for the establishment of a shrimp farm. The action was accepted and the court established that Nature has the right to restoration in accordance with the provisions of Art. 72 of the Constitution of the Republic of Ecuador in accordance with what is established in Art. 396 and 397 of the Magna Carta of this country. The judge ordered environmental reparations. An appeal was filed in 2020.
