WAYS TO BE AN AMAZON WARRIOR:

LEARN WHY YOU SHOULD CARE ABOUT THE AMAZON

Today the Amazon is being deforested and threatened at an alarming rate. It is now at the tipping point and the important natural things that the Amazon gives the world could one day be gone.

SIGN UP FOR A FREE ONLINE SCREENING OF “RIVER OF GOLD”

“River of Gold,” a documentary film by the Amazon Aid Foundation, chronicles a clandestine journey into Peru’s Amazon rainforest to uncover the savage unraveling of pristine jungle by illegal small scale gold mining.

HOST A SCREENING OF “RIVER OF GOLD”IN YOUR COMMUNITY

Use the power of film in order to educate and activate your community to protect the Amazon and help save the planet.

DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOUR GOLD COMES FROM?

Unsustainable gold mining practices are a significant threat to the Amazon Rainforest. Illegal small scale gold mining is the number one source of mercury pollution in the world.

USE AMAZON AID’S FREE EDUCATION CURRICULUM

Ask your school or community to teach Amazon Aid’s free middle and high school curriculum and make a difference.

WALK THE TALK-BE A BETTER CONSUMER: Know your products

Buy only what you need, reuse, don’t waste, research the products and pick environmentally friendly- cleanly sourced items that treat workers and living beings fairly and ethically. Buy locally and organically. Think renewable. Think clean.

SIGN THE PETITION – Stop illegal gold mining in the amazon

SUPPORT INDIGENOUS COMMUNITIES AND ORGANIZATIONS 

Around the world, indigenous peoples are finally being recognized as the best protectors of their territories. In the past, outside efforts to protect the world’s forest have failed because they often excluded the indigenous people from the conversation. Evidence has shown that the indigenous peoples have better organized themselves to take care of their forests and to assert their rights. Respecting the wisdom of the peoples of the Amazon is critical for its protection.

DONATE TO HELP AMAZON AID  PROTECT THE AMAZON & HELP SAVE THE PLANET

At the current rate of destruction, it is projected that the Amazon could be gone in 40 years. With your support, we hope to protect the lungs of the Earth for the health of the planet and for future generations to enjoy.
