The mighty fluke of a humpback whale, the observing gaze of a lone coastal wolf, the vivid colors of macaws in the Amazon rainforest, an inconspicuous purple shore crab that low-tide left uncovered, and a cuddly Grizzly cub – this year, our conservation calendar displays the wonderful variety that the forest habitat has to offer, from the harsh Northern coast of Porcher Island to the hot and humid tropics of Peru.

We are back in our office regularly now, Monday through Friday from 8am to 4pm (CET), where you can reach us personally and on the phone. Due to the current situation, we will have to do without many important donations from partners and events. Any contribution to the protection of wilderness makes a great difference during this time. And you can easily make an impact from home, for example by protecting a piece of wilderness, giving away a piece of wilderness as a gift or making a regular contribution. Stay safe, Your Wilderness International team

Where does all the rain in the rainforest come from? You would think it comes from the Pacific Ocean, since it is so close by. However, in the west of South America, the Andes are up to 6000m high. Rain clouds from the Pacific have no chance of crossing them to reach the Amazon basin. Of course, lots of water also evaporates over the numerous rivers of the continent. Yet that would never be enough to create the up to 2000mm of precipitation that rain down on the area every year. So the rain can only be coming from the Atlantic Ocean. Yet how does it travel up to 5000km from the eastern coast all the way to the furthest corners of Amazonia? The answer lies in a unique water cycle that the forest itself keeps alive. The Amazon rainforest has its own invisible river, a continuous stream of fresh water that is invisible to the bare eye. Even though it carries more water than all the rivers of the Amazon basin combined!⁣⁣ It can only exist because the forests of the Amazon basin form the largest coherent rainforest on Earth. And they make their very own weather!
