Amazonia is in the midst of a tipping point crisis and unless we secure ambitious protection for it, we could soon be seeing the rainforest transform into a savannah.

In solidarity with Indigenous partners, we’re working to advance action to protect 80% of Amazonia by 2025.

This initiative is working to help build a worldwide shift in awareness and advocacy around protecting 80% of Amazonia 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 — as degradation of the region has already reached 26% of the region.

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 RAISG, AVAAZ, Wild Heritage, RE:Wild, Amazon Watch, and Earth Insights.

The Science Is Clear

Deforestation levels are currently approaching 26% tipping point of irreversible damage to the Amazon ecosystem.
