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.


Join us in saving the Amazon while there’s still time!

Our Projects

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.


EARTH stands for Environment Activities & Rainforest Teaching Hub. Our mission is to teach students about the natural world through stories, videos and activities. We hope to inspire a greater appreciation of our environment and encourage the passion needed to save it!
