Project Summary

The Madre de Dios Amazon REDD Project, developed by our partners Greenoxx, consists of the sustainable land use of 100,000 hectares of rainforest in the Peruvian Amazon. The area is located less than 30 km to the side of the new inter-oceanic road that has recently united Brazil with Peru. The project is within the region that belongs to the Ecological Corridor Vilcabamba-Amboró, one of the world’s greatest biodiversity hotspots.

This charismatic boutique project will dramatically reduce deforestation in the region of Madre de Dios and protect the habitat of 35 endangered species and the livelihood of local indigenous communities such as the Yine, Huitoto, Mashco Piro, Yora and Amahuaca tribes who rely on the forest for their survival.
