Amazon Project

The Amazon Natural and Cultural Heritage Project commenced as a pilot project in May 2023.  It aims to help conserve and restore ecosystems and endangered species and preserve the cultural traditions and knowledge so indigenous communities can maintain their traditional way of life.  The project works in a small community called Monte Carmelo, located in the basin of the Urubamba River in the Southeastern Peruvian Amazon. The community manages around 20 thousand hectares of tropical forest — 12.6 thousand of which are primary forests designated for conservation.
