All Eyes on the Amazon

In the Amazon humans and environment are under pressure as never before. The exploration of natural resources such as timber, oil, minerals and expanding soy plantations for livestock production are an enormous threat for our planet.

Indigenous People and local communities living in the Amazon are the the guardians of the forest. They are on the frontlines, facing the powerful agricultural, mining and logging industries. With their knowledge, they are key to end the destruction of the rainforest and to protect it sustainably.

All eyes on the Amazon supports Indigenous People and local communities in their fight to keep their forest. It combines state-of-the-art-technology, such as satellites and drones, and local knowledge to detect deforestation, pollution and human rights violations, record it and eventually stop it.
