The Amazon Defenders Fund

Host Organization: Amazon Watchmdi-circle-small Oakland, CA, US mdi-circle-small


Amazon Watch resists the destruction of the Amazon by challenging disastrous development projects that threaten Indigenous peoples and their ancestral territories. With the tipping point imminent, fossil fuel extraction, mining, large-scale hydroelectric dams, and highways cause even greater deforestation.

Amazon Watch protects millions of acres of rainforest every year by partnering with Indigenous peoples to directly challenge the corporate and government powers that threaten the Amazon and our global climate.

By exposing the global financial institutions that enable the worst practices of corporate actors, Amazon Watch is working to shift the economic and socio-environmental policies that affect the integrity of the Amazon rainforest and the survival of its peoples. Our proven strength is innovating effective strategies to reform the financial industry, a key contribution to the global climate justice movement
