Catalyzing a Regenerative Movement in the Amazon
The Chaikuni Institute is a non-profit organization and educational hub working for a truly sustainable future for the Peruvian Amazon. Through the union of ancient indigenous traditions with contemporary Permaculture design, we teach and apply regenerative community-based development practices in Amazonian communities.
We bring together people from across the planet with indigenous people of the Peruvian Amazon to co-vision and commit to a common goal – working collectively for the protection of the Amazon rainforest, her people, traditions and biodiversity.
Support Indigenous Rights over Pluspetrol Profit
For more than 40 years oil activity has brought destruction to the ecosystems and the indigenous people of four river basins, all major tributaries to the Amazon, which gives life to the biggest rainforest on Earth.
The operator responsible for this human and environmental disaster, Pluspetrol Norte S.A., has evaded any responsibility. The company’s contract expires on August 29 but now a new oil lot, 192, has been created and put up for sale. Three big oil companies have shown an interest, including Pluspetrol Norte S.A, but the indigenous people of the River Tigre have stated they will not permit this operator to stay one day longer on their territories.
Read their testimonies and more about the impact of oil exploitation in our new report.
In order to truly understand the effects of Pluspetrol’s practices on the Amazon, we must listen to the traditional custodians of that land. They bear witness to the catastrophic results of choosing dependency over sustainability.
Please support their demands for the sake of the Amazon and all life.
