Amazon Sacred Headwaters Initiative Alliance

The Amazon River is vital to all of humanity and one of its birthplaces is under threat from the expansion of oil drilling, mining, and new roads that will change it forever. This region:

  1. Spans 74 million acres (30 million hectares),
  2. Is among the most biodiverse places on Earth
  3. Is home to nearly half a million Indigenous peoples from 20 different nationalities in Ecuador and Peru.
