Andes Amazon Fund
The Andes Amazon Fund is a 5-year effort to conserve habitat and biodiversity in the Amazon headwaters in the countries of Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia. Over the 5-year period they will invest US$20-30 million in supporting the creation, management and long-term financing of a wide variety of protected areas ranging from indigenous reserves, conservation concessions, regional protected areas and national protected areas. Their target is 25-50 million hectares of habitat with improved prospects for permanent conservation. They fund civil society organizations with philanthropic grants and often partner with government organizations to co-finance projects.
