Amazon Rainforest Conservancy

Saving the rainforest one acre at a time

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.

Our 2022 Impact Report is here! Thanks to our supporters, we raised $225,813 in 2022. And only 3.2% of our annual expenses went towards operating expenses in Canada.



Scientists are raising the alarm. The humidity levels of the Amazon are dropping. The wet-adapted tree species and the animals that live there are in crisis. The Amazon rainforest has reached a tipping point and is being reduced to a degraded savannah. Essentially, the Amazon rainforest is dying.

Should we care? Yes, we should care. A lot.

We’ve witnessed the destruction first hand. We’ve seen vast areas of rainforest destroyed by logging and slash and burn farming. We’ve visited illegal gold mining camps that have transformed pristine wilderness into mercury polluted “moonscapes”. We’ve walked on roads which cut through previously remote and inaccessible areas where indigenous people live in voluntary isolation.

The death of the Amazon will release massive amounts of carbon leading to extreme weather events and disease outbreaks – which we’re already experiencing. The reduction in rainfall will lead to water and food shortages, and mass extinctions of plant and animal species affecting families and economies worldwide. So yes, …it’s serious.

It’s more important than ever that we stand together to protect and defend what’s left of the Amazon Rainforest.

Goodbye Miners. More Land. Great Team.
