May Nonprofit Spotlight: Andes Amazon Conservancy

International Institute of New England logo

Andes Amazon Conservancy (AAC) is collaborating with four Indigenous Nations in Ecuador in a landscape-scale conservation program which maintains ecological connectivity between the Andes and Amazon and safeguards ancient wildlife migration corridors. Contiguous habitats that support wildlife migration are vital for maintaining and sustaining the region’s increasingly endangered biological diversity. This 175-mile long, 6-million acre Indigenous-planned and implemented eco-cultural corridor is a new model for conservation in an era where 80% of the world’s remaining biodiversity is in Indigenous territories.
