Gaia Amazonas

Gaia Amazonas is a remarkable Colombian conservation organization. Created to protect the biological and cultural diversity of the Amazon, Gaia Amazonas has helped return over 100,000 square miles (26 million square kilometers) of Colombian rainforest back to the control of its native peoples. That’s an area larger than the UK!  Alongside the traditional knowledge and sustainable practices of indigenous peoples, the group helps conserve huge tracts of the Amazon Rainforest, including countless orchids. Founded in 1990 by Martín von Hildebrand, Gaia Amazonas is trying to expand its amazing success into Brazil and Venezuela. You can help support the group by donating and sharing its message of empowering native peoples to care for the rainforest.
