Join our fight to protect the greatest wild forest on Earth!

Protecting the Amazon means safeguarding millions of species of animals, plants, and insects who call it home. It means allowing indigenous communities and locals whose livelihoods depend on the forest to thrive. It means stabilizing our planet's climate and protecting 20% of the oxygen production of our world. It means a lot.

Amazon Conservation has been protecting the western Amazon for almost 20 years now. We work hard to maximize the impact of your contributions. We are a top-rated charity by Charity Navigator (4-Star rating), Guide Star Exchange (Gold Level), and Great Nonprofits (Top-Rated). So when you donate to Amazon Conservation, you can feel comfortable knowing you are contributing to a trustworthy organization that shares your passion and commitment for environmental conservation.
