About Amazon Watch

Amazon Watch is a nonprofit organization founded to protect the rainforest and advance the rights of indigenous peoples in the Amazon Basin. It works with indigenous and environmental organizations in campaigns for human rights, corporate accountability and the preservation of the Amazon’s ecological systems. Amazon Watch envisions a world that honors and values cultural and biological diversity and the critical contribution of tropical rainforests to our planet’s life support system while believing that indigenous self-determination is a critical component of any successful conservation strategy for the Amazon. The organization strives for a world in which governments, corporations and civil society respect the collective rights of indigenous peoples to free, prior and informed consent over any activity affecting their territories and resources.
