About Amazon Aid

Amazon Aid Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization working to educate and empower people to protect the Amazon through art, science, and multimedia. Our goal is to preserve the rainforest for the health of the planet and for future generations to enjoy.

Where We Work

Our work is focused on protecting and reforesting the Madre de Dios region of southeastern Peru where the Amazon rainforest meets the eastern slope of the Andes. Madre de Dios is one of the most biodiverse regions on the planet, harboring thousands of plant and animal species. Unfortunately, it is also a hotspot for illegal mining activity which causes rampant deforestation, mercury contamination, and ultimately accelerates the effects of climate change.
