The Amazon Rainforest Conservancy (ARC) is a registered Canadian Charity. We protect threatened tropical rainforest habitats in the Peruvian Amazon to conserve and restore the biodiversity of species and ecosystems for the benefit of future generations.
Join us in saving the Amazon while there’s still time!
Help us win the Great Canadian Giving Challenge!
Every dollar donated in June gives an ARC an entry to win $20,000 in the Great Canadian Giving Challenge. This prize could help us buy a replacement boat and motor in Madre de Dios after our previous one “disappeared” during the pandemic. A boat is essential to reclaiming our Brazil nut concession that we were forced to evacuate in March 2020 due to Government lockdowns.
For 2022, we are planning on adding projects in the Cloud Forests and Headwaters of the Amazon basin. This will allow us to protect a wider biodiversity of plants and animals, and especially endangered species and the wildernesses they call home.
Protecting The Lowlands
We help protect 146,000 hectares (360,000 acres) of pristine old growth rainforest in the Madre de Dios region of southeastern Peru.
Protecting The Cloud Forests
In line with ARC’s holistic approach to biodiversity conservation we want to make the Amazonian cloud forests a priority.
Protecting The Headwaters
The unique combination of mountains, highlands, forests, wetlands and peat bogs means the headwaters of the Upper Amazon has a high level of endemic species, many of which exist nowhere else.
