The Amazon is the world’s greatest rainforest, but it's being destroyed faster than ever. If this continues, further indigenous peoples will be robbed of their territory and catastrophic levels of carbon will enter the atmosphere. Do you want this future?

ACT co-creates new conservation models with the people of Amazonia. We protect the forest, ensure its peoples' cultural survival and well-being, and promote indigenous land rights and self-determination. Let’s reimagine and restore the future.
