An Area Critical to the Earth’s Climate

The Sacred Headwaters is a region of the Amazon rainforest in Ecuador and Peru and is an area of immense global importance.

It is recognized as containing the highest levels of biodiversity in the entire Amazon basin—perhaps in the whole world. And by sequestering carbon and producing oxygen on a massive scale, the Amazon rainforest plays a critical role in helping to regulate the Earth’s climate.

Permanent Protection of the Sacred Headwaters

Despite its globally recognized ecological value, the Sacred Headwaters, and its indigenous stewards, are under threat from oil and other extractive industries. While Ecuadorian and Peruvian laws formally recognize indigenous ancestral land rights, governments claim ownership of subsurface mineral rights (and use that claim to encourage industrial level exploitation of indigenous territories).

Unless the industrial onslaught is successfully challenged, this culturally and biologically critical region is at risk of degradation, deforestation, and toxic pollution. The consequences would be severe not only for indigenous communities for whom these forests are sacred homelands, but also for our global climate

Pachamama Alliance, in partnership with other organizations, is currently developing a plan to secure permanent protection of this region. Today in honor of Earth Day, donate to Pachamama Alliance to support the permanent protection of this critical area.
