for the protection of the Amazon rainforest 

Wilderness International

Preserve a piece of endangered wilderness together!

On their 6-month trip to South America in 2023/2024, Yvonne and Jerry also spent a few days deep in the Amazon rainforest in Peru, where they were able to experience the uniqueness of this ecosystem. Through Wilderness International, they and their community want to protect as much of old-growth forest as possible forever.
