Since 2014, we’ve safeguarded the communities, species, and resources of the Andes mountains and Amazon headwaters—vast ecosystems vital to the future of our planet.

Yes, these lands face tremendous threats in the form of climate change, deforestation, and unsustainable development.

But we see incredible progress happening on the conservation front. With the help of AAF and our mission-critical partners, millions of acres of forest—containing countless species, indigenous communities, and those living in voluntary isolation—are now safe and secure for many years to come.

Saving a landscape like no other

Preserving the forests between the eastern Andes mountains and the upper lowland Amazon means ensuring a vibrant future for the communities and precious ecosystems of Peru, Colombia, Bolivia, and Ecuador. What happens in this region impacts all of us, however. Not only do these areas hold an estimated 20 percent of the world’s freshwater, but they are also highly important for global climate function.
