Camino Verde is a United States-based 501-c-3 tax-exempt charitable organization dedicated to:

  • Protecting and understanding biodiversity in the Peruvian Amazon.
  • Protecting indigenous rights, autonomy, and wisdom.
  • Spreading sustainable ways of life and encouraging fair, sustainable development.

Our mission is to plant trees and encourage others to do the same.

Camino Verde is committed to upholding the strictest standards of sustainability, integrity, transparency, and simplicity in order to realize our goals.  It is our belief that the most powerful solutions are usually simple-- and always direct. In the pursuit of "beyond sustainability," the natural world is the inspiration and model for the solutionswe create.
