Amazonia 80×2025 Initiative
That’s why in solidarity with Indigenous partners, we’re working to advance action to protect 80% of the Amazon by 2025.
This initiative is working to help build a worldwide shift in awareness and advocacy around protecting 80% of the Amazon by 2025 — the level science says is necessary to avoid catastrophic tipping points that would transform the Amazon biome as we know it. And the moment is urgent — we are now just two percent away from that threshold.
Amazonia for Life: 80% Protection by 2025 is led by the Coordinator of Indigenous Organizations of the Amazon River Basin (COICA). COICA and Stand.earth co-coordinate a steering committee dedicated to advancing the 80×25 vision and work in partnership with Amazon Watch, OneEarth, IntAct, RAISG, AVAAZ and Artists for Amazonia.
The Science Is Clear
Deforestation levels are currently approaching 18% – a mere 2% away from the edge of the tipping point of irreversible damage to the Amazon ecosystem.
