IMPRINT

WELCOME TO THE RAINFOREST.

WELCOME TO THE FUTURE.

AMAZONICA wants to preserve the rainforest for all humanity.

For this purpose, we have developed innovative solutions

together with the indigenous peoples of the Amazon.

For 30 years, AMAZONICA has met the 8 UNO millennium goals

Eradicate extreme poverty and hunger

AMAZONICA has confidence in education and, together with the respective groups, the foundation develops models for living and working in a contemporary world with dignity, without having to migrate. Creating jobs and income is important in the rain forest too.

Achieve universal primary education

AMAZONICA builds and maintains primary schools, makes secondary school attendance possible, provides scholarships for post-secondary studies and, in particular, supports  training for craftsmanship and a skilled trade.

The work done by AMAZONICA meets the eight millennium goals set by UNO.
The points emphasized here are education, nature conservation, global partnership,
women and children. The AMAZONICA Academy is a perfect partner of the UNESCO education initiative for sustainable development. This unique institution serves the indigenous population

in the rain forest as well as international students and scientists and resolutely pursues

the goal of nature conservation through education.

A global partnership for development

AMAZONICA Academy is a prototype for global cooperation for the good of everyone. The first academy in the primary forest in indigenous territory creates local education opportunities and jobs by allowing young people all over the world to become familiar with the forest and learn to appreciate and preserve it.

Promote gender equality and empower women

AMAZONICA focuses on working with women because they are the heart and power source of the family. With great success, the foundation supports efforts to ensure that girls and women share and participate in everything and experience equality in all areas of life.

Reduce child mortality

AMAZONICA relies on education here as well, and particularly on hygiene. Mortality rates decrease dramatically in response to personal hygiene, a clean house, clean water and a minimal amount of medical care.

Ensure environmental sustainability

AMAZONICA is convinced that the future quality of life on Earth primarily depends on our ability to maintain the balance of nature as we are part of it. To protect the forest from inside, we rely on its indigenous population. The protection of the rain forest from outside must be ensured by all of us living in industrialized nations.

Improve maternal health

AMAZONICA has built countless health centers and also provides mobile consultation, with instructors that travel from village to village explaining what is important before and after giving birth. Both conventional and natural medical care are offered.

Combat HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases

AMAZONICA fought a malaria epidemic for three years within the project region (10,000 sq. km). It was the most comprehensive campaign in the entire Amazon region and its success continues today: the region has been malaria-free for eight years.

CONTRIBUTING TOWARD EDUCATION

 

 

TROPIC ICE - THE AMAZON RAINFOREST AND GREENLAND IN CLIMATE CHANGE

 

AMAZONICA RESEARCH PROJECT:

A BIRD IS PROTECTING NATURE

 

 

Education is the most important topic and top task when it comes to supporting indigenous forest peoples, who are protecting our rainforests:education for those learning their ABCs on up to graduates and training in professions and activities that contribute to each family’s livelihood.

 

The Ecuadorian State is not only neglecting the indigenous population in the Amazon Basin, but it creates obstacles that are insurmountable, even for the brightest and most willing students.

 

 

Here is where AMAZONICA takes action: we provide equal opportunities and support schools and students.

 

Your donation and our work will provide education and bring about progress for the indigenous forest peoples too.

 

 

 

The tropics / the Amazon rainforest in climate dialog with ice / Greenland.

 

Our AMAZONICA Foundation has gladly supported this production by Barbara Dombrowski. The representatives of the tropical Amazon region are the peoples of the Achuar and Shuar in Ecuador, with which AMAZONICA is working together for 15 years. They want to protect their rainforest, to conserve it, and we help them.

We feel and experience the effects of climate change every day. Where nature is the liveliest, the effects of climate change are felt most intensely: fundamental change of the weather, the seasons, water and drought... and the worst: the extreme species extinction. We do not only know from the newspaper that worldwide every hour four species are wiped out – we are experiencing it on the spot!

 

Thank you, Barbara, and thank you, Greenlanders, that you create awareness in this joint project about what will destroy mankind!

The harpy eagle is the largest eagle of Central and South America and is regarded as an important bioindicator for an intact tropical rainforest ecosystem.

 

Ruth Muñiz is a world-famous Spanish ornithologist who has been exploring and documenting the behavior of this population of eagles for 12 years.

 

AMAZONICA financed the first scientific work with harpies by Ruth Muñiz in the forests of the Achuar in the Ecuadorian Amazon region in 2002 and 2003.

 

Since January 2014, AMAZONICA has been financing another research series with Ruth Muñiz. By monitoring the harpy eagle, we want to achieve declaration of their territories as a listed wildlife sanctuary.

 

In this way, a bird could protect the primeval forest that the Ecuadorian Government  wants to sacrifice for economic interests.
