SAVING OUR RAINFORESTS

  • Conservation efforts ensure that the resource is protected from exploitation and effectively managed over time
  • Sustainability education and fair trade certifications provides the indigenous with a mechanism to protect their land while sustaining their way of life
  • Changing policies forces companies to consider the actual economic value of 1 Hectare of Peruvian Amazon:
  1. $148 for cattle pasture
  2. $1,000 for clear-cut commercial timber
  3. $6,820 for sustainable harvests (fruits, latex, timber)
  4. Priceless benefits of clean air, biodiversity, and medicinal cures
