ARTIST FOR THE AMAZON

Testimonial

As a Brazilian, I have had a relationship with the Amazon since a young age,  but it was on an expedition in 1994 that I first understood and connected to its cultural and spiritual energy. 
 
My admiration for its rich biodiversity and ancestral knowledge, in contrast with the destruction of forests and rivers by the  fires, mining and logging industries, together with the neglect of indigenous culture and their land rights has inspired me to become an Amazon Guardian.
 
There is no way that you come back from the Amazon and not become an activist
