AMAZON REFUGE ~ How You Can Help

The Yanayacu de Yacapana River is home to the San Juan de Yanayacu Indians.

MEDICAL CLINIC

The Amazon Refuge is now in process of helping to build a large building at the San Juan de Yanayacu Indian community. The building will be used as an emergency medical clinic, schoolroom for children and will have two rooms with beds/bath for visitors to stay in (rustic but comfortable).

The Indians will be doing the construction. Amazon Refuge is helping raise the money needed for materials. The fund raising is through a USA non-profit medical organization that brings medical people to remote villages around Iquitos.

100% of donation to our Yanayacu community are used to give assistance to the Indians.

Davarian in the Amazon

Juan Carlos Palomino, Director of the Amazon Refuge Wildlife Conservation Center, meets with the leaders of the San Juan de Yanayacu Indian Community. With Juan Carlos giving English translation of the conversation.

The home of the San Juan de Yanayacu Indians is on the Yanayacu de Yacapana River, a tributary of The Peruvian Amazon River.

The community of 200-Indians, 125 of which are children, help protect their rainforest home, one of the most biologically diverse places on earth with more species of mammal than any other place on Earth.

Immediate needs of the community include a clean drinking water supply, a small medical clinic, and a school for the young children.

With the cooperation and support of the San Juan de Yanayacu Indians part of their land was granted to Amazon Refuge for the construction of a research and conservation center.

Amazon Refuge Wildlife Conservation Center offers opportunities for community service as part of our charitable outreach. Our volunteers have come away with personal growth and the reward of contributing meaningful work in this remote wilderness and foreign culture - enriching their lives for the better.

The mission of the Amazon Refuge includes providing employment for the San Juan de Yanayacu Indians so they may live productive and sustainable lives, in harmony with nature. And to allow volunteers to assist us on projects for the betterment of the Indians' lives.

You will not be invading or disrupting their culture but helping to preserve it. Our projects offer you an opportunity to experience the Amazon jungle as it is, but more importantly to give something back to a community.

Our diverse selection of service projects includes everything from low-skill labor to high skill medical or dental care. Community service projects can range from a few days to a week, to several weeks in length. Part of a regular tourist program can include community service or one's entire trip can be devoted to a service project.

This is your opportunity to visit a pristine Amazon rainforest. To leave behind preconceived notions of Amazon Indians and to immerse yourself in a culture that belongs to the forest. You can explore one of the most biologically diverse places on our planet.
Teach and be taught. Challenge your mind and body. Let your Spirit become your guide.

Amazon Refuge has partnered with Project Amazonas:
Project Amazonas is a United States based 501(c)(3) non-profit. All donations received are tax-deductible.

100% of donations to our Yanayacu community are used to give assistance to the Indians.
