Preserving The Amazon Rainforest

“WWB Co-founder, Elena Rojas-Martinez, admires an ancient old-growth forest tree in the Reserve” In 2007 the Peruvian government granted WWB a Concesión para Conservación, a Forest Reserve of more than 10,000 acres of virgin old-growth rainforest near the National Park Pacaya-Samiria. It is our responsibility to protect the trees in this territory from the human predators and to work with the two native populations whose own traditional lands border this forest area to sustainably collect the renewable small medicinal plants, fruits and nuts in the protectorate.
