A Lifeline for the Amazon and its Guardians

The Amazon Sacred Headwaters, a vital source of the Amazon River and home to 600,000 people of diverse indigenous peoples and nationalities, is under threat. These territories are not only rich in biodiversity but are also sacred to the indigenous communities that have protected them for generations. Your support is crucial in preserving these lands and the cultures they sustain.

We consider that without it concerning indigenous territories there is no life possible in the Amazon.

A just transition comes from an Indigenous people's perspective to demonstrate that not only extractivism means development, but that there are other options. We want to show the world that there are other possibilities where it is not necessary to pollute forests and rivers, a new form of economy without violating rights or ecosystems in these spaces that are territories for life.

Our main priorities are:

Strengthen the institutional capacity of member indigenous organizations

in territorial governance, advocacy, project implementation and financial management.

Secure funding to support indigenous-led initiatives

in food security, livelihood alternatives, forest monitoring and intercultural health

Accompany and support local flagship projects

on education and reforestation: Reforestando bosques comestibles y Escuela Viva de la Amazonía

Organize or participate in joint communication and advocacy campaigns

And legal actions to deter extractive industries and defend indigenous rights and the rights of Nature.

The area of the Sacred Headwaters comprises 35 million hectares and is the source of the Amazon River, which originates from the Napo, Pastaza and Marañon rivers.

The life that the Sacred Headwaters create for these ecosystems along their course provides space for countless species of animals and makes them home to at least 600,000 people of diverse indigenous peoples and nationalities.

These forests sequester approximately 24,155 Mg of carbon each year.

At least 34 indigenous languages are spoken throughout the bioregion.

+ 2.3 thousand hectares of areas proposed for the protection of Isolated Indigenous Peoples

Together, we can ensure that the Amazon rainforest remains a thriving ecosystem for future generations and that the voices of its indigenous guardians are heard and respected.
