WHAT WE DO


The Amazon rainforest is the world's largest and most biodiverse tropical rainforest, covering an area larger than the continental United States. It houses one-third of the Earth's plant and animal species and produces one-fifth of all its fresh water. Nearly 400 distinct Indigenous peoples depend on the Amazon rainforest for their physical and cultural survival. At current rates of deforestation, nearly 50 percent of the Amazon could be lost or severely degraded by the year 2020, and the vast majority will no longer be in a pristine state.

For almost two decades, Amazon Watch has stood with the Indigenous peoples of the Amazon Basin, helping build a global movement of forest guardians, while using creative and effective strategies to confront urgent threats to one of our living planet's most precious resources. Amazon Watch Allies Australia is a voluntary group working to extend the reach of Amazon Watch, in solidarity with Amazonian Indigenous communities to advance the rights to their land. The Amazon faces a myriad of threats and more than never they need our help. We want to help Amazon Watch build a global movement to protect the Amazon.
