Acción Ecológica is an organisation based in Ecuador whose work focuses on the impacts generated by activities like oil drilling, mining, shrimp farming, logging and tree plantations, hydroelectric plants, biotechnology, transgenics, bioprospecting and biopiracy. It works to strengthen food sovereignty and the defence of the rights of nature, highlighting issues such as the free circulation of seeds, access to water and land, and the right to culturally appropriate food. It also addresses broader issues like environmental impacts in urban areas, globalisation, free trade agreements, ecological debt and climate change.

Acción Ecológica also operates a community communications project called Agencia Tegantai, a news service that aims to support the rights of nature and strengthen organisational processes in the environmental movement through the exercise of the rights to freedom of expression and information.
