David James Elliott comes back from Ecuador a changed man

By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith

HollywoodNews.com: David James Elliott took his wife, son and daughter to the jungles of Ecuador this spring on the invitation of Amazon Watch — and has come back a changed man.

“I’m going out there again, longer this time, because I want to become more
active with the cause of getting clean water into tribal areas. These giant
corporations go in with their mega-projects and toss their crap into the water.

It’s terrible, shameful. With this going on, and what’s happening with the BP
catastrophe in the Gulf — the day of reckoning seems to have arrived. It’s here. Do it now or we’re done. Hopefully, we’re not too late.”
He’s been talking to Trudie Styler, aka the wife of rock star Sting and
co-founder of their Rainforest Foundation organization, about next steps.

The Elliotts spent two weeks in the rain forest, staying with members of a
warrior culture known as the Achuar, who are looking for help as they struggle to fend off the despoiling of their land. “Taking my family there was a calculated risk,” he admits. “We didn’t know as much as we should. There are definitely things there that can kill you.”
