Matching Campaign Assists in Deforestation Prevention Efforts in Peru

doTERRA Wellness Advocates raise funds to implement a ranger patrol program with local workers and to help stop the further deforestation of land in the Amazon rainforest. 

Junglekeepers is a nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting the Las Piedras River in the Madre de Dios region of the Peruvian Amazon Rainforest. This area of the Amazon Rainforest is one of the most biodiverse and pristine parts of the Amazon, and is currently at risk for significant deforestation and other disparaging circumstances. 

During the summer of 2017, doTERRA Wellness Advocate Rebecca Foon hosted a 30-day fundraising challenge to support the efforts of Junglekeepers, and reached out to the doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation™ about expanding that support. With the help of doTERRA leader Adabelle Carson and the added support of the doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation, Junglekeepers was able to implement a ranger patrol program that employs local workers and protects the land from further damage and deforestation. 
The remainder of the funding was used to protect the biodiverse ecosystem land along a more northern piece of the Las Piedras River. Junglekeepers is also working with a non-governmental organization out of Lima, Peru, to ensure that this biodiverse environment is being protected.
