The Amazon is the planet's largest rainforest and river basin. One in 10 known species lives here as well as 30 million people.
In the last 10 years 1.200 new species have been discovered in the Amazon: one every 3 days.
Forest destruction is the second major cause of global greenhouse emissions. In Brazil 75% of emissions is due to the Amazon deforestation.
Climate change could soon lead to a tipping point where the tropical forest collapses.
The elimination of deforestation is crucial to tackling climate chaos, conserving biodiversity and defending traditional cultures.


The Amazon tropical rainforest is one of the most imperilled ecosystems on earth. Its survival depends on the people who inhabit it. The inhabitants of the forest are the guardians and use the land without harming the plants and the animals that also call the rainforest their home. 

Amazônia Onlus supports the Amazon natives in the fight against the deforestation and for the conservation of the rainforest and its biodiversity.

Since 2004, the nonprofit organization has worked to ensure education, health and sustainable development of the indigenous communities.

In Brazil, Amazônia Onlus has carried out several projects for environmental conservation and social and humanitarian interventions, improving the quality of life of the Caboclo population and helping to protect approximately 200 thousand hectares of tropical forest. In Europe, the organization carries out activities to raise awareness on environmental, biological and cultural diversity issues, as well as fundraising activities and events about the environment.

The Amazon is vital to the future of the planet. We believe that it is not necessary to destroy the forest in the name of economy because a new form of development is actually possible through the responsible use of our natural resources.
