Madre de Dios Amazon REDD Project video produced by Wild Visions, Inc.
The Madre de Dios Amazon REDD Project consists of 100,000 hectares of rainforest, located in the Peruvian Amazon, only 400 km from the historic sanctuary of Machu Picchu, the “Lost City of the Incas” The area is located less than 30 km to the side of the new inter-oceanic road that has recently united Brazil with the Peruvian ports. The project is within the region that belongs to the Ecological Corridor Vilcabamba-Amboró, one of the world’s greatest biodiversity hotspots. This charismatic boutique project will dramatically reduce deforestation in the Peruvian Amazon and protect the habitat of endangered species and the livelihood of local indigenous communities who rely on the forest for their survival. Saving the forests of the Amazon is truly the right move to make. Help us to protect this unique reservoir of biodiversity and indigenous cultures and to mitigate climate change. This project was extremely interesting to work on and I feel privileged to be a part of this video production about environmental conservation.
