8. Road Warriors

When the Peruvian government decided to build a road across the rich, biodiverse ancestral lands of the indigenous Maijuna people, the Maijuna rallied to propose the creation of a new, protected site in this corner of the Amazon. The government halted the road project and declared the 830,000-acre Maijuna Regional Conservation Area to support and preserve the Maijuna culture. We are collaborating with Nature and Culture International, the Maijuna people, and other local communities to develop conservation-compatible economic uses of forest resources to sustain both the people and this remarkable ecosystem.
