Now in our 20th year, Pachamama Alliance is embarking on a new phase of our work in the Amazon rainforest of central and southern Ecuador and northern Peru where we have been working for the past two decades. With our indigenous partners and other non-governmental organizations, we are beginning a multi-year project to secure permanent protected status of these areas—which will include indigenous management of the key social, economic, and political aspects of the area and include a complete ban on all industrial-level extractive activities.

This project is a major undertaking and will take over a decade to be fully implemented. Now, we are entering into a 2-year development phase in partnership with Amazon Watch, our close collaborator in this region. Between now and December 31 we are raising $100,000 to kickstart the funding for the development phase.
