Why do we do it?
Saving the Amazon seeks the following objectives:
- Reverse climate change
- Support indigenous communities
- Conserve the biodiversity of fauna and flora in the amazon forest
- Protect water sources
- Combat multidimensional poverty of indigenous peoples
How do we do it?
Saving the Amazon, thanks to donations from companies such as Green Ekii, provides financial contribution, training, education, and general assistance to 30 indigenous communities of the Amazon rainforest, so that using their ancestral knowledge, they plant new trees and care for them until their maturity. So far, they have managed to plant 66,000 trees with the help of these communities.
Why the Amazon?
- The Amazon is the most important place on earth, hosting 30% of the world's biodiversity
- It is inhabited by more than 350 indigenous groups
- It has the largest carbon reserve on the planet, its conservation is vital to combat climate change
- Loggers, miners, and farmers deforest the Amazon every year
- Currently 17% of its surface has already disappeared, and at the current rate of deforestation, in 30 years it could see half its surface reduced, putting the entire planet at risk.
