Social Impact Project for Videographer/Photographer for Social Project In the Amazon Jungle
Project Description and Impact
In the last 35 years more than 95 thousand hectares of forest have been deforested from Madre de Dios Region in Southeastern Peru.
Madre de Dios is one of the most remote and biodiverse regions of the world. It’s a place where countless scientists, explorers, and adventurers have traveled to in order to discover what lies within it and to test what they’re made of.
Madre de Dios is the most degraded region in the Amazon rainforest. The Madre de Dios region comprises the sector with the biggest degradation caused by the informal extraction of gold from the entire Amazon rainforest. In addition to this negative impact on the environment, these illegal practices also exploit children (especially girls).
Our Eco Lodge is in charge of preserving and protecting 94 Hectares of the Peruvian Amazon Rainforest. Additionally, we are also the founders of an environmental education and development project called "Children Bamboo Rainforest".
The project seeks to work with bamboo as an innovative resource for the conservation of the Amazon rainforest, with community education involving children and adolescents in this process. The Children Bamboo Rainforest will be a healthy and safe space to promote knowledge and conservation of bamboo and its natural environment and ecosystem (flora and fauna) and igniting interest in conservation. The Children Bamboo Rainforest belongs to the Children's Land Network of ANIA (Association for Children and their Environment), which adds its experience to the conservation of the rainforest of this region. Our mission is to reduce deforestation in the Amazon region through the education of proper bamboo management practices in schools, communities and private companies.
Our project won one of the Ned Jaquith Foundation Grants for 2018/2019. We're looking for an experteer to help us share the impact of our work is the most effective way!
