Since 1999, the Amazon Conservation Association has supported a thriving Amazon through scientific research, the direct protection of critical habitats, the sustainable use of natural resources, education and training. The organization established Peru’s first conservation concession in 2001, creating a 360,000-acre buffer for Manu National Park, one of the most biological diverse places on the planet. Its world-class biological stations in the Andes-Amazon region serve as learning laboratories for Amazon scientists, conservationists, researchers and students from around the world.
With offices in Washington D.C. and partner affiliates in Peru and Bolivia, the American Conservation Association is committed to the dual purpose of protecting biodiversity while providing an income to local people. A project giving Brazil nut concessions to local harvesters provides a yearly income for thousands of families in the Amazon while protecting several million acres from deforestation.
Thank you for sharing.
