At Amazon Conservation, we understand that we cannot protect this massive forest alone.
We work together with local communities, governments, indigenous groups, scientists, and partner organizations to protect this vital place for local inhabitants and future generations. We focus our efforts on on-the-ground conservation solutions that have a lasting impact in the region.

We implement direct conservation solutions across 124 million acres of the Bolivian and Peruvian Amazons, the most biodiverse place on Earth. Larger than the state of California, this region contains a distinct set of interconnected iconic landscapes whose unique characteristics shape how we deploy our approach in each place.
The landscape where our on-the-ground efforts take place in Bolivia and Peru is a microcosm of the entire Amazon and a living laboratory for finding solutions that are applicable well beyond our boundaries. We scale our impact by engaging and bringing together partners at the national level in Bolivia and Peru, as well as in other Amazonian countries where they can implement similar approaches.
Our unique alliance is comprised of three local nonprofit organizations in three countries united under a mutual mission to protect the Amazon. Legally separate but functioning as a single entity, we work on the ground in Bolivia and Peru, delivering conservation results that build local and national capacity and knowledge, while devoting our presence in Washington D.C. to amplify our work, expanding our scope and connections on an international scale.
All of the Amazon Conservation Association’s work is comprised of joint efforts made on behalf of all of these organizations.
