One and one-half acres of rainforest are destroyed every second.

Rainforests once covered 14% of the earth’s land surface; now they cover a mere 6%.

Experts estimate humans could destroy the last remaining rainforests in 40 years.


The Amazon Rainforest Conservancy is a nimble organization with charitable status dedicated to protecting the Peruvian Amazon. We don’t have the executive salaries and overhead of some other conservation groups, which means we direct all donations to protecting land from destruction. Our work depends entirely donations from our supporters who share our passion for the natural world and are committed to helping us achieve our goals.

ARC educates, inspires and raises awareness.
