Protect a great Amazon tree
We are a non-profit Peruvian association founded in 2010 in Madre de Dios.
We manage and take care of 916 hectares of Amazon rainforest (2264 acres) in the Las Piedras River basin, Madre de Dios. The organization is led by women and its purpose is to implement forest conservation actions involving civil society and the private sector.
