Junglekeepers’ mission is to employ preventive and sustainable solutions for the long-term protection of the Madre de Dios rainforest ecosystem. We are currently focussed on protecting the most biodiverse and untouched part of the amazon: the Las Piedras river. This pristine river flows through the heart of the Peruvian Madre de Dios, the sacred headwaters of the amazon rain forest. The rapid rate of deforestation due to roads and agriculture is threatening the amazing diversity of life along Las Piedras river.
Junglekeepers has been able to secure 2,130 acres of beautiful rainforest along the Las Piedras river that is under severe threat of being logged and mined. We work on a weekly to monitor the land and support and employ locals to have sustainable opportunities for employment while protecting the land. We are now working to protect 20,000 acres of land further upriver, close to uncontacted tribes, untouched and with incredible biodiversity.
