Amazon Watch

Providing direct rapid-response grants to Indigenous communities defending themselves from the spread of COVID-19.

Category:

Oakland, CA – EIN 954604782 amazonwatch.org

Indigenous peoples in the Amazon have historically been decimated by infectious diseases, and the COVID-19 global pandemic puts their lives in even more danger.

Since 1996, Amazon Watch has protected the rainforest and advanced the rights of Indigenous peoples in the Amazon Basin. We partner with Indigenous and environmental organizations in campaigns for human rights, corporate accountability, and the preservation of the Amazon’s ecological systems.

Amazon Watch resists the destruction of the Amazon by challenging disastrous development projects and natural resource extraction and by promoting Indigenous rights.

The Amazon is the world’s largest terrestrial carbon sink and plays a critical role in regulating the global climate. Yet this global treasure is at great risk – already more than 20% has been deforested, and new fossil fuel extraction, mining, large-scale hydroelectric dams, and highways cause even greater deforestation and run roughshod over Indigenous people’s rights and territories. Amazon Watch protects millions of acres of rainforest every year by partnering with Indigenous peoples – the best stewards of the forest – to directly challenge the corporate and government powers that threaten the Amazon and our climate.
