Playful monkeys, mysterious jaguars and liana-clad jungle giants - the Peruvian Amazon rainforest is the most biodiverse place on earth! Together with Wilderness International, you can protect this habitat forever.
When the sun rises over the forests along the Tambopata River, the forest begins to breathe. Warm mist rises above the treetops, breaking the sunlight into warm colors of red.
Streaks of sunlight shine through the dense canopy of the enormous jungle giants, which stand on meter-high buttress roots and are draped all over with lianas.
On the online map you can see all the areas that the Secret Forest currently covers, as well as their location on the globe. There you will find our current aerial photos and you can also see which areas are already permanently protected through sponsorships.
New pieces of land are added on a regular basis. Our goal is to protect a contiguous habitat along the river.

I am convinced by the directness of the work. Instead of expensive awareness campaigns, WI actually protects unique wilderness areas. And not only the how, also the what has a hand and foot. Areas are selected on the basis of their acute threat, their ecological importance or their strategic location. All of this can be tracked by anyone using geo-coordinates. More transparency is impossible!
