We unite science, innovation and community to protect the western Amazon—the greatest wild forest on earth. Amazon Conservation Association (also known as Amazon Conservation) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that has been protecting the western Amazon for almost 20 years now. As conservation pioneers since 1999, we have used science to guide our multi-pronged approach to environmental conservation and restoration in Peru and Bolivia. Our founding program provided support for Brazil nut harvesters in Peru, as an incentive for protecting the forest. Since then, the organization has grown to protect over 4 million acres of rainforest, establish Peru’s first conservation concession, host thousands of scientists and tourists at our three premier biological stations, empower indigenous communities to develop forest-friendly livelihoods, and so much more.
